Home Instead support Charity to deliver Festive Cheer

After the challenges of 2020 it was an excellent opportunity for Lisa Stirk from Home Instead and her husband James to come together and support an amazing local charity SOP (Supporting Older People) in delivering some festive cheer to the local people of Harrogate and surrounding villages.

Throughout previous years Home Instead are proud to be a regular volunteer at the weekly Music and Movement Group which takes place on a Tuesday morning at The Green Hut on Harlow Hill along with being on the fundraising steering group who meet monthly at VW Knaresborough showroom.

Lisa and James were delighted to deliver a number of gift bags which were filled with seasonal treats and a cracker which Home Instead donated as part of the scheme.  Lisa said "it was truly magical to see some of the weekly Music and Movement attendees and chat with them on their door steps to make sure they are keeping safe and well through these unprecedented times" Lisa heard a lot of stories throughout the deliveries of how people have not seen their close families or friends and that some had felt quite lonely.

Lisa and all the other  volunteers at SOP hope that 2021 see's the local groups re open and bring people back together to offer support and laughter as well as seeing friendships develop.  Sop also run regular Tea & Talk afternoon tea's at The Crown Hotel in Harrogate and lunch clubs held at Graveleys fish and chips restaurant.

Home Instead were also delighted to feature Kate Rogata Director at SOP in their 2nd Edition of their Live Well Your Way Publication where she shared information about all of the amazing work they do as a Team and organisation and a little about herself and her career to date.
