Christmas hampers donated to vulnerable residents

More than a hundred festive hampers have been donated to some of our isolated residents as part of our annual project to provide people with festive treats over Christmas.

Our people and eight volunteers from The Prince’s Trust helped in packing the hampers which included mince pies, cheese biscuits and more festive treats.

In total, almost 150 hampers were given to residents across Sheffield, Gainsborough and rural Lincolnshire including bumper hampers going to our sheltered accommodation schemes. Our neighbourhood team and customer support team nominated people from their areas who they thought needed some extra Christmas joy over the winter period.

Angie Stevenson, our Area Service Manager at Acis, said: “I nominated three of my customers for hampers, one has just been widowed, one is a new customer who has been very ill and is still undergoing treatment for cancer and the third one is for another widow, who has had a tough year. I feel extremely happy to have the opportunity to give these hampers to three customers whose lives have changed dramatically this year.”

Our Fundraising Coordinator, Hannah Taylor-Dales, said: “This year we wanted to do something a little special for our customers who we know to have had a difficult year or who will be struggling in some way. In total we have donated over 140 festive treat hampers and we hope they are enjoyed by everyone who receives one.”

Alex Hooton, a Team Participant from The Prince’s Trust said: “On the day we made the hampers, we labelled the gift bags and filled them with festive treats. It made me feel good knowing that we were helping other people have a better Christmas. I am sure the hampers we made will help brighten up the holiday season of the people who are in need.”
