Appeal for help for local elderly at Christmas

A HOME care agency has appealed for donations to help provide its elderly clients with companionship and merriment this Christmas.

Housing 21, will be delivering Christmas dinners to more than 100 elderly people in Skegness and the surrounding area, many of whom have no family to visit during the festive period.

Carer Karen Cuppleditch said: “Many of our clients have no Christmas dinner, no festive spirit and they don’t see anyone. Christmas can be the hardest time of year for many elderly people so our carers will be giving up their own time to give these people a bit of company on the day.”

Karen and her colleagues will be cooking and delivering meals to elderly people around Skegness, Spilsby, Chapel St Leonards, Friskney and Wainfleet throughout Christmas Day.

Local businesses, pubs and supermarkets have donated food and gifts but Karen and her colleagues still requires fruit and vegetables to complete the Christmas menus.

If you can donate any fruit or vegetables to Housing 21 contact Karen on 07957 998912.
