Community Champions in Plymouth
Jemima Holly and Kevin Sproston, Directors of our Plymouth branch were Finalists of the Good Neighbour Award at the “Plymouth Community Awards”, held on 25th June.
Jemima and her Bombshells team are involved with and support many local charities and initiatives.
Over the last year, they have sponsored the Keyham Colts, under 11s Football team, Scouts and local schools, Clean Our Patch – a community litter pick involving schools, Cubs as part of the Duke of Edinburgh Awards, and founder members of Plymouth 110 Improving Lives.
Community Work 2018 – 19
Kevin says that the next football season, 2018-19, will see the Friends Helping at Home logo on the teams’ shirts.
The newly launched Friends Helping at Home branch in Plymouth will be doing more in conjunction with their other established business – Bombshells Hair and Beauty, to support charities and good causes in the local community.
“We are already in conversations with organisations as to where our support can make a difference.”
Andrew Richardson, Friends Helping at Home, Managing Director, said that he was delighted to have been invited by Kevin and Jemima to another Awards event at the Crowne Plaza, at which both the branch directors had be recognised for their community work and support.
“Our ethos is about giving, going above and beyond the expected. The carers and support workers that join us are very much wired the same way as Kevin and Jemima, who enjoy their work as a vocation, and that shows in what they do and achieve in the day-to-day running of their business.”
