Story

Friends...
I've joined a fantastic charity called Contact the Elderly and I would love your help.
They arrange for those that live on their own, over 75 and find it difficult to get out and about a lifeline.
I collect Vera, Rebecca and Margaret once a month and take them to a hosts house for afternoon tea. There's about 10 'oldies' in our local group each month and whilst it's just a few hours out of my day, for them it's invaluable. (You should see the smiles!)

On 11th December we're hosting a Xmas lunch and all the groups in the area are meeting at a pub in Hornchurch. The actual lunch is funded by donations and so whilst we'll gladly accept more that's not why I'm writing.

Each month we organise a small raffle. Most of the prizes are less than £5 (normally a tin of sweets, biscuits, bottle of wine or a toiletry set).
They'll be about 50-60 oldies at the Xmas lunch and I'm hoping that instead of one or two smiles, all of them can win a prize to take home.

I'd love to say you'll get a photo and a regular update from your oldie... ( i used to sponsor a donkey when i was 8) but you won't. Some of them won't remember they've even won a prize but when their chomping on a Celebration or a shortbread biccie, I can assure you they'll be appreciative.
Warm fuzzy feeling for you, xmas prezzie for them!

I'm hoping you'd be happy to donate £5 or as little as you can afford. I've already had an amazing response and the more we raise, the more groups we can help.
Please help me spread the love x

P.s. For those that live local and would rather buy something for the raffle thats cool too. You can drop them off before the day!
PPS. I wasn't insinuating any connection between old people and donkeys.

I really wasn't expecting such a good response to my fundraising page and so thank you making so many oldies smile at Xmas.
