On Thursday we received a lovely call about our Project Manager, Peter Griffiths who has proved that not all heroes wear capes!

Peter was out on site with two scaffolding contractors from FSG Property Services when they noticed an elderly lady having difficulties with her mobility scooter. It turned out that her battery had run out of charge. Peter kindly drove the lady home, following Covid-secure measures, while the contractors took care of her scooter and delivered it safely back to her home, where she was able to charge it. The lady called to say a big thank you to them all.

Our second hero stepped in to help a couple who were involved in an accident at their home in December.

The pair had managed to call for an ambulance; however, when paramedics arrived, they couldn’t gain entry to the home.

Luckily, an operative from our contractor FSG Property Services came to the rescue. Using the fixed scaffold that was in place, he was able to get in through a small gap in the second-floor window. He squeezed himself through the window and was able to give the paramedics access to the home and the tenants. The tenants are overwhelmingly grateful for their help and have thanked everyone involved. Our Red Kite team followed up on this incident by returning to the home and ensuring that it was properly secured, and that the damaged door was replaced.

Great examples of people going above and beyond in our community.
