Families in Glastonbury will be able to enjoy some extra special treats this Christmas thanks to a festive donation.

Funded through developer Sanctuary Homes’ MORE programme, energy and regeneration specialist ENGIE organised 12 large food hampers, crammed full of Christmas goodies, to be distributed in the Somerset town by charity Children’s World.

Sanctuary’s MORE programme supports local need and aspiration in places where it builds new homes. The developer is currently building 133 new homes at its Kingsfield site just off the A39, with ENGIE the appointed contractor.

Kingsfield will feature a total of 30 two-bedroom, 61 three-bedroom and 12 four-bedroom houses, as well as 30 two-bedroom apartments. They will be available for shared ownership, affordable rent and open market sale.

Sanctuary Homes’ development manager Justin Cartwright said: “Christmas is a time of giving and we sincerely hope that these food hampers go some way to bringing the festive spirit to families in Glastonbury.”

Children’s World director Kristen Lindop commented: “It’s a pleasure to be able to help spread some extra festive cheer to local families over these next 12 Days of Christmas. Thank you so much to ENGIE and Sanctuary for involving us.”

Charlotte Hargreaves, community investment manager for ENGIE, added: “It’s not just about completing the work on this new development, here at ENGIE we put the same amount of work back into the local community.

“This is a fantastic example of the social value work we do as a partnership.”
