Home instead Senior Care Altrincham and Sale is spreading some festive cheer through its Be A Santa To A Senior appeal.
Home Instead Senior Care delivers presents to older people in a bid to bring a seasonal smile to their faces.
The company provides everything from personal care to companionship and co-owner of Trafford Home Instead offices, Alan Savage said the firm is looking for donations of everything from a box of biscuits to toiletries.
Alan and co-company owner Alison Broadhurst have joined forces to make this appeal bigger and better than ever. It is now in its fifth year.
The Alan said: "Statistically there are probably thousands of people in Sale and Altrincham who live alone and have typically outlived the rest of their family or their family lives far away. They could be spending Christmas alone.”
"A lot of the other organisations have come back and have said its great. They go in and give someone some treatment and the patient is quite surprised when they get a present. Its nice to know someone in the community has thought about them."
He added: "“It is very simple to get involved. Simply buy a present, big or small, and take it to one of the collection points listed above. Home Instead staff and volunteers will then wrap the donated gifts and deliver them on your behalf to elderly people in the local community who might be lonely over the holidays."
