Local British Gas Customer Delivery Manager, David Steatham, nominated the DPC for his teams charitable donation and as a result the DPC received an unrestricted grant of £2,000. David, who lived and grew up in Smethwick, then reached out to see how else they could assist us this winter and in response to the current cost of living challenges, they are helping to bring a touch of luxury to 12 local families through Christmas Day hampers. The hampers include breakfast, dinner, dessert, a soft drink, and a selection box along with crackers for a family.

David's team of engineers not only agreed to purchase the contents of one hamper but went the extra mile in helping to assemble the hampers. The families supported were identified by our Community Navigators, ensuring that they went out to those in need at Christmas and will help bring a smile to some faces on Christmas Day. A big thanks and well done to everyone at British Gas for this wonderful gesture!
