Thanks in advance for your support! Based on last year:

£1-£5 will buy a small wrapped gift and card such as a calendar, socks or small box of chocolates

£5-£10 will buy a medium wrapped gift and card such as a scarf, ornament or crockery

£10+ will buy a large wrapped gift and card such as toiletries, a food hamper or fashion jewlery. Alternatively we could use this to buy a few small to medium gifts for multiple people. Based on last year, around £100 will support an entire care home.


in Summer 2015 my grandma's dementia became unmanageable and she had to move into a care home. Violet became friends with my grandma and spent each day becoming her best friend, as if for the first time. After a few months I noticed Violet never had visitors, she told me she had no friends or family, like many otherss in the carehome.

Although this is incredibly sad all year round, Christmas can be very lonely time for those without loved ones. I asked friends and family if they would be happy to donate gifts for the residents without friends and family at my grandma's care home and was overwhelmed with the response! We were able to help over 70 people with no friends or family across 6 care homes in Rickmansworth, Ealing and Hatch End/Oxhey. Unfortunately this was Violet's last Christmas, but I'm glad we could make it so special for her.

Many of the donors last year asked if they could send money so I can purchase a suitable gift on their behalf. I'll make sure to tell you what I bought and who it was donated to.

Thank you for your support!
