Christmas Wishes

Last week Steve Willoughby meets with two businesses the Brentwood Care Home and The Ginger Tree Shop in Ingatestone who have been kind enough to host a Christmas Wish Tree organised by the United in Kind Charity since November. We collected generous gifts which had been brought by employees and visitors to the centre and shop. A Christmas wish on a label hanging from the tree was taken from a member of the public and a wish was granted. We had a few CAREGivers who wished for a charity donation and their wish came true with a donation to a Homeless Charity and Hopefield Animal Sanctuary in Brentwood. Thank you so much to everyone involved, the CAREGivers are overwhelmed with all the generous gifts and we have had some busy elves delivering these to the CAREGivers.
