Do you know someone who will be on their own this Christmas?
The LINK Visiting Scheme Christmas Day celebration is open to those living in the Wokingham Borough community who are alone on this day. They provide an opportunity to spend the day in the company of others, enjoying delicious food and a festive, party atmosphere. A team of volunteers give up their time to provide transport, catering, hosting and entertaining – everything it takes to ensure it’s a special day. It’s been running for seven years, with the number of guests growing each year.
The scheme is also reaching out for donations to help run the cost of the event and also to provide a present for those attending.
Could you donate a Christmas gift up the to value of £10?
It could be toiletries, winter gloves or scarves, socks, books, puzzles or games, chocolates, or special hamper style goodies.
