Longmores Charitable Foundation supports Small Acts of Kindness

  • Posted

The Longmores Charitable Foundation has awarded Small Acts of Kindness with a grant of £2,500 to help fund their winter gift bags.

The Longmores Charitable Foundation was set up by the firm of solicitors in 2016 with the aim to help worthy local causes; particularly smaller and less well-known causes that are often in greater need of financial support than many of the established national charities.

The trustees of the Foundation decided to award a grant of £2,500 to Small Acts of Kindness as they share an objective to help people in the Hertfordshire area.

Small Acts of Kindness source and distribute practical gifts that reduce the negative impact of loneliness and isolation on the physical and mental well-being of older people particularly those who are cold in their homes. They engage local people to create opportunities for these gifts to be the catalyst for building new social connections within communities thus reducing the leading factor that leads to feelings of loneliness and isolation.

Chris Pease, a trustee of the Longmores Charitable Foundation said, “It is an important to remember that loneliness and being cold can be a real issue at this time of year so we hope our donation goes some way to alleviating the problem”.
