Salix Homes goes the ‘Eggstra mile’ for local charity

Kind-hearted housing workers have gone the ‘eggstra’ mile to help families in poverty this Easter.

Staff at social housing provider Salix Homes, which owns 8,500 homes across central Salford, have collected a mountain of Easter eggs for the Wood Street Mission Easter Appeal.

Every Easter the children’s charity collects hundreds of chocolate eggs for children affected by poverty in Manchester and Salford, and employees at Salix Homes were happy to help the worthwhile cause.

Sarah McNally, marketing officer at Salix Homes, who organised the egg collection, said: “The Wood Street Mission is a wonderful charity that helps families with food and practical help in times of crisis and hardship, including many of our tenants.

“While Easter is a happy time for many, there are lots of families who will struggle to even put food on the table, so we hope the chocolate eggs we’ve collected will help bring a smile to children’s faces this Easter.”

Wood Street Mission is a Manchester based charity, which supports children and families in poverty in Manchester and Salford.

Roseanne Sweeney, Wood Street Mission chief executive, added: “We are giving food and chocolate eggs to more than 900 local families this Easter to take some of the pressure off family budgets and help them enjoy the holidays. We wouldn’t be able to do this without the generosity of organisations like Salix Homes.”
