Halton Borough Council’s Sure Start to Later Life is once again organising a Christmas party for clients and needs donations of tinned goods and food items to make up hampers for the free raffle prize.
The team is expecting around 100 people and is aiming to give everyone a Christmas card and present again.
Council officers are also collecting unwanted gifts, alcohol, tinned biscuits and chocolates, and anything else, which may be suitable to be given as a gift.
The team works with older, often vulnerable, lonely and isolated people, living within our community, and for some, this Christmas Party will be the only time during the festive season they will have the opportunity to have some company, and a chance to enjoy getting out and meeting people.
With this in mind, the Sure Start to Later Life staff are going all out to make this a special event.
Halton Borough Council’s Executive Board Member for Health and Wellbeing, Cllr Marie Wright, said: “We have been truly overwhelmed with the response we received previous years from Halton Borough Council staff, their friends and families and local business large and small.
“People’s generosity, during these difficult financial times, is remarkable and with your help, we aim to make this year even better. “
If you are able to make a contribution and would like to donate to a good cause, could you please drop any items off at Grangeway Community Centre? Or we can even collect if necessary.
