Louise*, is 89 and lives alone. She is just one of many older people who received a wellbeing box before Christmas, to help keep spirits high!
Our team received this letter of thanks.
“Thank you seems so inadequate for the lovely gifts ‘Santa Mary*’ gave me on Saturday. Also, appreciation for doing that for me.
Truly every article brought forth a comment ‘Oh isn’t that great!’ or ‘How thoughtful’ and the care gone into everything. You all must have spent hours on the shopping and then the time taken to prepare! Thank you! I was overwhelmed by it all and so heart warmed. It was so good to know I am still in the loop of such caring people.
As always, with love to you all.”
The boxes include items such as cross stitch kits, knitting kits, puzzle books, writing and sketch pads, paints, pencils, nail care kits, and anything else to boost people’s moods during the third lockdown.
We’d like to extend our thanks to everyone involved in the Wellbeing Box project, from colleagues, to volunteers, to local businesses donating items to be put inside – thank you all!
