We're supporting Involve Older People this Christmas!Back
This festive period, Connect2Staff are teaming up with Involve Older People to support them through one of their busiest times of the year. Working with similar service users, our Health Care team are excited to be part of such a vital part of the community for older people.
Involve Older People are part of Involve Kent, a Maidstone based charity that works with Carers, older people and many other isolated and vulnerable people within the community. Involve Older People works to support independence for older people through providing volunteers and running workshops and projects to integrate isolated people back into the community. The team work across Maidstone and the surrounding areas and have their ‘Hub’ based in the Mall Shopping Centre. Just a few projects that Involve Older People run include monthly lunches, day trips, shopping trips, knitting and sewing groups, cinema trips and transport facilities.
The 22nd December will see their annual Christmas Meal for isolated people aged 65+ held in Maidstone and are expecting nearly 80 attendees. During the Christmas meal, attendees will be given a Christmas gift… and this is where we need your help! A small gift can make a huge difference to someone’s life at Christmas, so all you need to do is donate either a female or male gift, (or both!) and Connect2Staff will deliver the gift to Involve Older People in time for their Christmas meal.
Here are just a few gift ideas for both male and female attendees:
Scarf, blanket, socks, male grooming kit/ladies soap set, gloves, hat, book, writing set, board game, chocolates, biscuits.
We’re really looking forward to supporting Involve Older People this Christmas and have already planned our gifts! If you’d like to help us support the charity, please contact Jazz at Connect2Staff Health Care on 01622 236680 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
