This year we are focusing on a new area of outreach, working with the elderly in our local communities. We encourage you to reach out to your local care home with love and warmth in a blanket.
As a community we do an amazing job at supporting our own care homes – let us use this skill and show our local communities that we care for them too.
We are offering you the funds to “Hug-a home” by purchasing each resident a fluffy blanket, and each member of staff a gift, which we will pay for.
Our 2021 winter project.
How it works
We suggest you identify and contact a care home of no more than 30 residents. It needs to be local to your church so that you can create a relationship. Then purchase the blankets & gifts and work together to wrap, write cards and deliver!
