Festive Christmas tree with stockings and toys at Pendray Inn & Tea House

On behalf of everyone at the Huntingdon Manor Hotel and Pendray Inn and Tea House, we give a big THANK YOU to all donors for our annual Victoria Women's Transition House Christmas Stockings fundraiser.  2019 was a year of records, and over 100 stockings as well as countless toys and gifts were collected from local businesses and individual donors.  These gifts will bring joy and happiness where it’s most needed, and generate hope and comfort for families going through some difficult times.

Finally a big thank you to the teams of Huntingdon Manor and Pendray Inn and Tea House for their donations and support, as well as the many anonymous donors who came by the hotel to drop off gifts and stockings. 

It’s always an honour to support a great cause such as the Victoria Women’s Transition House Society as they bring such positive change to our community.  They have been providing shelter, comfort and counseling to those needing a safe place to stay while rebuilding their lives. Today, the Transition House is 50 staff and 70 volunteers strong, and has supported many families across our community since 1974.

Happy Holidays and we look forward to an exciting 2020!!
