Thanks for FirstPort support

FirstPort stockings

Property management company FirstPort added some festive cheer for companions at Emmaus Coventry & Warwickshire. 

We'd like to say a big thank you to FirstPort team members in Halesowen who put together 29 Christmas stockings for our companions.

Although, thanks to Emmaus, they now have a stable home, Christmas can still be a difficult time for our companions as many may have lost touch with family and friends. 

FirstPort Retirement Property Services Customer Services Manager, Steve Howarth said

My team felt that we should be doing something charitable for Christmas and we know that the Graduates, based at our Luton office, are asked to do this every year. Emmaus is great cause that really makes a difference – and we wanted to be a part of FirstPort’s efforts to help. Staff across the office contributed generously. This really galvanised our team spirit!”

It was great to be able to offer our companions a treat on Christmas morning and for them to know that they are being thought about, so thanks once again,

As Emmaus UK’s corporate partner, FirstPort has raised over £70,000 for the charity in 2017 through the efforts of staff, customers and partners across the UK.
