With the support of friendly corporate volunteers EECF will distribute gifts to local elderly people across Tower Hamlets, bringing festive cheer to day centres and sheltered accommodation. We'll give each person a bag full of everyday food items and a few extra luxuries to help them enjoy the Christmas holidays and provide special gift packages for people living with dementia. Our volunteers take the time to sit down with local residents and listen to their stories, something the elders really appreciate
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Christmas is a time for family and feasting, but many elderly people spend the festive season feeling lonely or isolated; they might have been recently widowed, have family that live far away, or simply be too vulnerable through ill health to see friends from week to week. Receiving a food bag or gift gives a sense of belonging and well being.
