Recently Alan and his team joined forces with local community-focussed organisations to launch their festive gift-giving scheme, ‘Be a Santa to a Senior’. The scheme saw generous members of the public donate a fantastic total of over 300 gifts which are now being given to local older people who will appreciate a gift this Christmas.

At a community open day, held at St Paul’s Church Hall in Sale, organisations such as Washway Road Medical Centre, Trafford Carers Centre, Age UK, Parkinsons UK, the Stroke Association & local businesses raised awareness of their services as well as the team at Home Instead wrapping all the gifts.  The presents with a new ‘What’s on Where’ guide for senior people will now be delivered to older people in Sale & Altrincham and at Wythenshawe Hospital.

Owner of Home Instead Altrincham and Sale, Alan Savage, commented, “We’ve had a fantastic time launching this scheme. It’s great to see the whole community get behind what we were trying to do, it’s wonderful how everyone has worked together to bring a bit of festive cheer to some of our elderly people this Christmas. I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone involved, including all the retailers and the children from St Mary’s, Woodheys & Springfield Primary Schools who made beautiful Christmas cards to accompany the gifts.”

Home Instead are so delighted with the success of the scheme, that they are already making plans to roll it out again next year.
