For some people living on their own, Christmas can be a lonely time. Every December our sheltered housing colleagues try to bring a little extra festive cheer with some special deliveries.
In South Gloucestershire, Sheltered Housing Officers Kelly England and Sophie Bryant organised and delivered Christmas wellbeing hampers to residents at all the Curo sheltered schemes across the area.
Kelly, pictured above, said: “Sophie and I made up Christmas hampers of hot chocolate, shortbread, satsumas and good old mince pies, along with Christmas word-searches and notepads. We donned our Christmas jumpers and reindeer antlers to spread a little Christmas joy across Curo’s sheltered housing schemes in South Gloucestershire.
“We received lovely feedback from customers saying how nice it was to be thought of at this time of year, and we enjoyed being able to put smiles on our customers’ faces at a time of year that can feel really lonely and isolating.”
