Spreading Warmth: Be a Santa Campaign Connects Hearts in Tyne Valley

As the festive season approaches, the spirit of giving becomes even more poignant, especially for older individuals who may be spending Christmas alone or have limited family connections and may not receive gifts. At Home Instead Tyne Valley, we believe in the power of community and are excited to launch our “Be a Santa” campaign. This initiative aims to collect and distribute gifts to older individuals attending community centres or groups during the holiday period, ensuring they experience the joy and warmth of the season.

Partnership with Boots Pharmacy

Boots Pharmacy has generously collaborated with us by providing donation points in various branches, including Hexham, Corbridge, Stocksfield, Prudhoe, and Ryton. These accessible locations make it convenient for community members to contribute to our cause. The items we’re seeking for donation include practical and thoughtful gifts such as gloves, hats, scarves, hand warmers, warm socks, foot warmers, sweets, chocolates, biscuits, small gift sets, lovely soaps, pens, note pads, puzzle books, and more.

Community Centres in focus:

The heart of the “Be a Santa” campaign lies in the support we provide to local community centres. Currently, the centres benefiting from our initiative include Hexham Community Centre, No.28 Community House, and Gateway into the Community. These hubs are vital in bringing people together, especially during the festive season, offering Christmas lunches and socialisation opportunities for those who may otherwise feel isolated.

Connecting with Home Instead Tyne Valley Home Care Services:

At Home Instead Tyne Valley, we understand the significance of companionship and care, especially for older individuals during the holidays. Our commitment extends beyond the “Be a Santa” campaign, as we strive to create a community where everyone feels seen, valued, and connected. Our home care services cater to the unique needs of older individuals, providing practical assistance and genuine companionship.

The “Be a Santa”Campaign

The “Be a Santa” campaign exemplifies the spirit of giving and community support that defines the holiday season. By partnering with Boots Pharmacy and collaborating with local community centres, we aim to bring warmth and joy to the lives of older individuals in Tyne Valley.

At Home Instead, Tyne Valley, our dedication to fostering a caring community goes hand in hand with our home care services.
