Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from UK Connect

We hope that you enjoyed a great 2019 and are looking forward to a prosperous 2020!

Christmas

Charitable donation

For the second year in a row, UK Connect have made a monetary donation to Footsteps, a local Guildford based charity set-up to help homeless and needy people in and around the area. Our donation will help to provide Christmas dinner and all the trimmings for all their clients this year and in the words of Managing Director PJ Farr, enables the company to “give something back”.

In our industry, we work closely with developers who build new homes and with homelessness on the rise we thought it would be more meaningful to our customers and the wider Construction industry in general by supporting a local based charity, which aims to provide shelter for those in need at this time of year.

For these people, it can be lonely at Christmas time – they might be by themselves if they’re sleeping rough. Our aim is to make each event that we run a happy, lively, social atmosphere and we are very grateful to have UK Connect’s support once again this year to help raise awareness on the issue of homelessness and encourage others in the housebuilding industry to lend their support.
