CCSG volunteers have worked tirelessly since the first National lockdown back in March; supporting their local neighbours with shopping requests, prescription pickups and providing transport for hospital and doctor appointments.
Thanks to the generosity of Lords at home who have kindly donated £850 to CCSG, we have now been able to spread some Christmas cheer and kindness across the village and our neighbouring town this season.
The donation has enabled CCSG volunteers to deliver supermarket gift cards, Christmas arts and crafts packs, treats and a small gift for vulnerable families in our surrounding area.
Christmas community hampers were also prepared for dozens of our Senior residents. These were packed with fresh fruit, Christmas treats, puzzle books, jams, chutneys, crackers and homemade goodies. Most importantly, the hampers were hand delivered by CCSG volunteers, allowing for a doorstep chat with some of our most vulnerable community members who have been isolated and alone since the first lockdown.
Lords Managing Director, Tilak Patel, was delighted to be able to offer proceeds from his Christmas sales “Local residents have come and supported Lords throughout the lockdown period and I was keen to give something back to the community, particularly in these very difficult times“.
