There has been a tremendous response to this year’s Christmas appeal in the Wimbledon and Kingston office. They have made up over 30 hampers and food parcels for those less fortunate local folk who struggle at this time of year.
By asking staff, friends, families and local contacts, to donate much needed food stuffs as well as goodies, they have been overwhelmed with the response. Clare and her team have been busy making up parcels and hampers.
Clare adds, “We recognise that there are many who have such a tough life, caring for loved ones and dealing with very difficult situations, usually through no fault of their own. Christmas is often an added stress and pressure! We thought it would be good to help bring a bit of festive cheer to their lives. So we asked local organisations to identify people who most needed help and we were delighted to have dropped off all our hampers today to The Wimbledon Guild, Kingston Carers Network, Carers Support Merton, Kingston Association for the Blind, Merton Voluntary Services Council and The Stroke Association. We do hope this goes some way to making the festive season a little bit merrier!"
Merry Christmas to one and all!
