Be a Santa to a Senior
It's never been more important to support older people within our community, especially given many people have felt isolated and lonely as a result of the pandemic.
That's why this year we launched our Be a Santa to a Senior campaign. We asked local schools to create and donate Christmas cards, artwork, or messages to an older person this Christmas. We were inundated with responses and had over 400 donations from several of the local schools. We will distribute these beautiful gifts to our clients and other older people within our community. These included fantastic Christmas cards, some amazing felt reindeer and other felt Christmas characters, beautiful bracelets and window baubles and some calendars inspired by Bosnian artist, Yellena James.
Thank so you much to Talbot Road School, St James Church of England School, Shadwell Primary School and Collingham Primary School for all of your lovely donations.
