Be A Santa To A Senior 2018
'Be A Santa to Senior' is a heart-warming initiative. The aim is to ensure the older people in the community who would not otherwise receive a gift this Christmas receive one this year.
We approached church groups, community centres, assisted living facilities and local businesses, such as coffee shops to identify older people that may be alone at Christmas.
14 local retailers and businesses displayed our 'Be A Santa To A Senior' tags on trees provided, each tag personalised with a Christian name and the gift required. Kind members of the public then bought the gift and returned it for collection.
This year has been our most successful to date, we have managed to provide over 700 gifts throughout the Wirral, many have gone to Churches that open their doors on Christmas day to provide a festive lunch for those who would have otherwise spent it alone this year.
