We put together Christmas treat boxes for elderly residents in Gloucester 

December 01, 2020

A big well done to our Gloucester store's kind community champion Fay who not only arranged for Christmas treats to be delivered to elderly residents cared for by Gloucester Charities Trust but also hand wrote Christmas cards for them too!

Fay, pictured here with Anton and Vicky from the charity, said: "This time of year can be hard and this year is tougher than usual. Because of coronavirus many of the residents have not been able to have visitors so we thought we'd put together a few surprises. We donated tins of biscuits, shower gels, deodorants, chocolate lollies and things like that to put in a present box for Christmas. I got a box of Christmas cards and I've written one to every resident. The charity was over the moon – they were overwhelmed. I now can't wait to get back out there and give a donation of my time too. What they do for the senior citizens in Gloucester is unbelievable."
