Fyne Homes tenants, staff and the wider community recently collected “Goodness Gang” tokens from the Co-op, which allowed Fyne Homes Tenant Participation to purchase the toys to donate to local nurseries and pre-5 units.
The local Co-op at Bridge Street, Rothesay also kindly allowed a collection box to be left at the tills for customers to donate their tokens. The response was fantastic and Fyne Homes were able to donate over 150 “Goodness Gang” members to 17 nurseries and pre-5 units throughout Argyll & Bute.
Kora Nicholson – Housing Admin Officer and Craig Baxter – Tenant Participation Officer went on a road trip to deliver the “Goodness Gang” and fresh fruit to the children. It is hoped that by playing with the “Goodness Gang” in a fun environment will encourage healthy eating amongst the children.
As can be seen from the pictures, the donations were greatly received.
The list of establishments are as follows: - Campbeltown Nursey, Dalintober Primary ELC, Tarbert Academy pre-5s, Ardrishaig Primary pre-5s, Riverside Rascals, Badden Farm Nursery, Craignish Primary pre-5s, Lochgilphead Joint Campus pre-5s, Inveraray Primary pre-5s, Cairndow Community Childcare, Strachur Primary pre-5s, Patchwork Nursery Dunoon, Kirn Primary pre-5s, Clyde Cottage Nursery, Appletree Nursery Rothesay, Rothesay Play Group and Rothesay Joint Campus pre-5s.
Thank you to all who contributed to this fun initiative.
