On a very windy night, the eve of Christmas Eve, Home Instead were invited to an evening of mince pies and mingling by the North West Ambulance Service and Merseyside Fire and Rescue. The tables had all been set up for those who would not enjoy a Christmas meal with family or friends this year, with a christmas meal to be provided and served by the volunteers and services. This is an ongoing venture and Home Instead were delighted to sponsor a number of tables this year, as well as donating the Christmas tree. This is part of our commitment to work closely with local charities within the community. Irene Hough is seen here with Sara Smith and Steve Bousefield from the Ambulance and Fire Service. Both have dedicated themselves along with other volunteers to ensure that nobody should be on their own at Christmas.
