You often hear us saying at Just Helpers how much we love our clients and love our colleagues. And it’s true.

Our team take great pride in treating your homes as they would their own. We want to take this opportunity to say thank-you for trusting us with your home and office spaces over this past year, and to some of you, for embracing us as an additional member of your household.  We’ve loved being your Helpers and look forward to journeying with you next year.

Many of you ask me about potential gifts for your Helper.  For all of the team, the very best thing for them is a monetary tip as they are often trying to support family still located in their countries of origin. I will leave this between you and your cleaner, but please do be mindful of your last cleaning day before Christmas with your regular Helper. I would suggest just leaving a card etc, in a prominent place where she is likely to find it.

Christmas and New Year often provide a time and space for us to reboot, rethink and in some cases change direction. I pray for safety and well-being for each and every one of you as you pause, reflect, spend time with family and friends and enter into a new year.

For those of you who live in and around my neighbourhood, Streatham, I’d love to invite you to a Christian carols service at the Hideaway on 10th December at 3.30pm for families and 7.30pm for adults find out more here. It would be great to welcome you there for what I know will be a fab evening.

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas!

Warmest wishes,
Antoinette, and the Just Helpers team

P.S. Our Christmas Charity appeal is underway with bobble hats galore! As a team we have already raised £800, and hope you can join us too. For every £1 raised through Facebook, they will match our donations. Our team voted for two charities: Battersea Dogs & Cats Home and Great Ormond Street Hospital. Because we couldn’t access our chosen charity, Great Ormond Street Hospital through this giving site, we would love you to partner with us and UNICEF too.
