We donate festive hampers to isolated residents and sheltered schemes

Ladies at St Oswalds in Bardney with hamper

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

Age UK figures found 873,000 older people have little or no contact with people over the Christmas period.

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

In total, 109 hampers were given to residents across Sheffield, Gainsborough and rural Lincolnshire including special 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. One lucky customer was Eva Johnson from Bardney who celebrated her 100th birthday in June.

Our Customer Engagement Coordinator, Claire Tunstall, said: “It’s been a very successful year donating the hampers. We’ve had a lot of help from partner organisations including Tesco in Gainsborough who donated 100 boxes of mince pies. The hampers we give to our customers go a long way in helping those who are more isolated over the festive period.”
