Community Christmas Henley on Thames, believes that no elderly person in the UK should be alone on Christmas Day unless they want to be
This year I am arranging a wondeful Christmas Day for all the Elderly people who are in the area that want to spend Christmas Day in good company having a wonderful time, and meet new people that they can meet up with throughtout the rest of the year! share a cup of tea with, a phone call or a trip out - it makes a huge difference to their lives to no longer be alone
But to achieve this I am going to need some help in funding this project for all the festive food, entrtainment, decorations, transport and cost of the venue to make the day really special
This lovely community project is aimed at the lonely elderly that would normally be spending christmas alone this year, maybe they havent received an inviation to spend it with anyone, family live too far away or whatever the reason may be, they shouldn't have to be alone on Christmas Day, I can only imagine there face when they see their invitation to join us!
Christmas is about giving, and to me thats not so much about gifts as it is about community spirit, giving the gift of time and kindness to others, so this year I'm making my own Christmas special by helping others, it would be great if you could help too
Any donation no matter how small it may be will count tremendously to one of these lovelies! ~ many thanks
