Thanks Sunderland City Council we were given funding to put together and create 100's of activity packs to distribute around the city. Care homes in the North of Sunderland and isolated elderly adults living in Millfield and South Hylton were some of the people who benefited from our packs.
We've been out an about using our funding to drop off activity packs to some isolated older adults. It's nice to just chat to some of these residents as they may not have seen or spoke to anyone for days or even weeks! The majority of these people have signed up to our fun and informative newsletters for 8 weeks thanks to funding from Sunderland City Council.
As we know the weeks/months leading up to Christmas can be tough and Sunderland food banks are always in desperate need of donations. We had lot's of donations given towards our Christmas hamper appeal and we also had a little left over so we donated everything we had to Washington Food Bank!!
Before Christmas we managed to raise over £1000 to help us fund our Christmas Hamper Appeal. Our hampers were intended for families that needed that extra bit of help over this tough period. We along with some fantastic volunteers spent the day making up these festive boxes along with the activity bags mentioned above. Then 2 days before Christmas we as a team dressed as elves to deliver the hampers and put some smiles on lot's of families faces!
EACH TIME WE DELIVER THIS PROJECT WE LOVE IT MORE AND MORE! TO SEE FAMILIES EXERCISING TOGETHER AND ENJOY GOOD HEALTHY MEALS! THE ABILITY TO DO IT FROM THEIR OWN HOMES IS A PLUS ESPECIALLY IN THESE UNCERTAIN TIMES! WE CAN'T WAIT TO DELIVER THE NEXT COURSE SOON!
