Help us to make next Christmas less lonely for local older people by donating your unwanted Christmas gifts.

Did you receive a Christmas gift that you don’t want? Many older people are alone at Christmas and don't receive any presents. This Christmas, we received over 650 gift requests. As this year’s festivities come to an end, we are looking ahead to next year and thinking of those who are not fortunate enough to have family or friends.

You can help by simply donating your unwanted gifts at one of the designated gift drop-off points listed below and we will store, wrap and distribute them next Christmas to a lonely older person. Non-perishable items only please!
