Story

Hello

I work for a fantastic charity called Croydon Neighbourhood Care Association. CNCA run a complex befriending service for elderly, isolated and frail people throughout the borough of Croydon. Our clients often have no next of kin, have been victims of crime and some are reliant on carers.

Over the Covid-19 period, we have had to put our befriending face-to-face visits on hold. Our service is currently running with more regular telephone calls but the clients have really missed not being able to see our befrienders. They have often felt even more alone and, with so much uncertainty, it’s been a frightening time for them too.

Every year, we hold a Christmas Tea Party afternoon which our clients always look forward to and, for many of them, it’s the only social interaction they have over the festive period. We also distribute 100s of bags of Christmas goodies. These bags are put together from donations from across the business and school communities and delivered by our member groups throughout the borough.

With the restrictions this year, we are unable to carry out our normal plans but will be making Christmas gift boxes and delivering them to our clients. Many of them have little or no contact at all with anyone and as this year has been especially difficult, it is so important to let them know they are not forgotten and that people do care.

We are asking for donations to source some lovely Christmas treats to fill the boxes and are hoping to be able to deliver 50 of them before Christmas.

We would be so grateful for any amount of donation you can spare to help brighten someone’s Christmas.

Thank you.
