Be a Santa to a Senior Appeal
This year’s Be a Santa to a Senior Appeal has got off to a great start in the Sale and Altrincham areas with the fantastic support of local businesses once again.
Headed up by Alan Savage, Liz Rhodes and Lucy Gill at Home Instead Senor Care Altrincham, Be a Santa to a Senior is a gift giving scheme which aims to touch the lives of older people within our local community and provide presents to those who may be lonely and not receive a present during the festive season.
Now in its 4th year, this appeal has in previous years had an amazing response with hundreds of gifts for seniors donated very generously by members of the public in the South Trafford area, and this year we hope will be no different.
We have many local businesses supporting our 2015 scheme, both in terms of raising awareness and distributing leaflets, as well as those who have kindly offered to be a present collection point.
Sale Sainsbury’s , Boots, Serendipitea Café (Washway Rd), Wilkos
Sale Moor Age UK,

Would you like to be a part of something great, and show someone that you care this Christmas?
Pick up a leaflet with the gift tag from various businesses
Buy /donate a present, fill out the tag (really important to put your name on as our local seniors love the personal touch)
Don’t wrap the present we do that for you and we add in a Christmas card and a What’s on where guide for Sale and Altrincham.
Attach the tag to the present or keep them together somehow (in a bag together)
Drop off at a donation site mentioned above.
