Please suppoprt our Christmas Present appeal

30 November 2017

By giving a gift to our Christmas Present Appeal you can make a real difference to someone’s life at Christmas.

In Doncaster there are over 16000 elderly people living alone.  Many will have little if any contact with family or friends and feel isolated.  B:Friend Doncaster  is a charity that arranges for volunteers to visit around 40 older neighbours in the Doncaster area, with an additional 40 older people attending group sessions each week.  Volunteers will visit for a cup of tea and a chat or accompany someone for a walk around the park or to the local café.

 

Over the Christmas period these feelings of isolation and loneliness can be even harder to cope with.  Beechwood will be giving presents to B:Friend for their volunteers to give to the people they visit and we would  ask for your support by donating small gifts to help us with our appeal.  We will wrap the gifts and pass them on to B:Friend. 

By giving a gift to our Christmas Present Appeal you can make a real difference to someone’s life at Christmas.

 

Many thanks to you all.  I hope you have a very Happy Christmas.

 

Dr Mark Straw.
