At this time of year, it is so important to remember those that won’t be amongst friends and family at the time of Christmas. 500,000 older people face Christmas alone, but with fantastic new schemes such as Community Christmas, volunteers and the community can help to provide companionship, so that those that don’t want to be alone, don’t have to be.
Community Christmas already has over 250 activities and events around the country listed on their website, but with all our help they can have even more, so that nobody has to be alone this Christmas.
I urge anyone and everyone, if they know of any local events taking place across Tynedale on Christmas Day, to have it listed on the Community Christmas website: http://communitychristmas.org.uk/contact-us/register-an-event-or-activity/
Lets combat loneliness, and spread some Christmas cheer, this Christmas.
