Royal British Legion to Receive 200 Christmas Hampers
Donated by Ron Smith Recycling to local elderly residents
Royal British Legion residents will be receiving some early Christmas presents, thanks to the generosity of a local Isleworth businessman and Hounslow Council.
Ian Hutchins, Director of Ron Smith Recycling, and Councillor Sue Sampson, cabinet member, communities and economic development, donated 200 food hampers to Hounslow’s Royal British Legion elderly residents, who will be home alone this Christmas.
On Friday 12 December, they met Diane Gleeson, manager of the Isleworth branch, to give her some of the Christmas hampers.
Cllr Sampson said: ‘Thanks to Ian Hutchins, we are able to make these donations to local elderly residents, who will be home alone this Christmas.
‘He grew up in Isleworth and has become a very successful local businessman. He wants to make sure that no one goes without this Christmas, especially his elderly neighbours in Isleworth.’
The Isleworth Branch of the Royal British Legion, 5-6 North Street, Isleworth, TW7 6PA, meets at 7:30pm on the first Monday of each month.
The Royal British Legion was founded in 1921 and has been providing support for people who fought in both World Wars of the last century and more recent conflicts since 1945.
