Jubilee party in the street
Jennifer Young-Thompson, sales manager of the Southfields office, first spotted the plans to host an afternoon tea party on Trentham Street in the local residents’ association newsletter, and sent an email to see if the organisers were looking for sponsorship. ‘They were delighted,’ she says. ‘The locals are very pleased that we offered funding and I hope they think of us as part of the local community.’
In Kingston upon Thames, two associations are benefiting from KFH sponsorship for their street parties after they contacted sales manager Lisa de Wit. And the West Wickham office is sponsoring the WWRA Diamond Jubilee celebration as a part of a KFH initiative that promotes participation in local communities.
Other 2012 local branch sponsorships include the Putney Hill office of the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability and the Earlsfield office of the Swaffield Primary School playground regeneration project.
