Members of our Friendship Network and our Stroke Service have been answering the door to our own version of Santa’s little helpers this week as staff and volunteers have been out delivering our filled hampers to 55 local residents.
‘Each hamper has been personalised to suit our members’ wishes,’ says Ed Bartram, Co-ordinator of the Friendship Network. ‘Some of our members opted for ‘A Little of What you Fancy’ and some for our ‘Super Savoury’ version and then we added fresh items and specific requests to suit their tastes. For those members who didn’t want a hamper we are putting on a special lunch this Sunday and a trip to Little Angel Theatre next week.’ We couldn’t have got the hampers underway without the fantastic efforts of a volunteer team from Euromonitor, organised by the Big Alliance. They made and covered the boxes and made sure each one contained the right ingredients.
