We are delighted to invite you to help pack gift bags that will be given to local vulnerable older people across Hertfordshire. 

Our ‘Bags of Kindness’ project in partnership with the Community and People Wellbeing team at Hertfordshire County Council and Hertshelp has the contents for 3000 gift bags ready and waiting to be packed.

We need your help to make this happen and to bring a smile and kindness to older people across the county during the long, dark winter days. Many of whom are feeling more than a bit lonely and isolated right now.

We have all the gifts and the bags and all we need now is you!



16 & 17      Tuesday & Wednesday    Bags of Kindness

23-25         Tuesday - Thursday        Bags of Kindness



The sessions will run from:

Morning: 10am – 12.30pm

Afternoon: 1.30pm – 4.00pm

All sessions will take place at Greycaine Road, WD24 7GP. Full details will be sent with your booking confirmation email.


You are welcome to join us for a morning, an afternoon, the whole day, a few days, a whole week or every session.

We welcome teams from businesses, individuals, families and friends. 

Our packing stations/tables will be spaced well apart. There will be 10 tables per session with a maximum of 2 people per table or 1 family per table.

In line with current Government guidelines we strongly recommend that you:

  1. Take a lateral flow test before you come to a session
  2. Wear a mask
  3. Maintain a sensible distance of at least a metre from other volunteers
  4. Wash your hands regularly whist on site

These recommendations may change over the weeks and months ahead and we will advise you nearer the time if there are any updates

We cannot do this without your kindness and support and extend a huge thank you in advance.
