Can you help spread some happiness this Christmas?

Did you know that there are over 200 older people in Calderdale who won’t be getting any Christmas presents this year – more including those in care homes.

You can make a difference to someone this Christmas by donating a small gift, whether it’s a pair of gloves, socks, chocolates, toiletries, or even an unwanted gift from last year, the cost is not important – it’s the giving that matters.

Gifts can be dropped off right up until Christmas Eve at Customer First, Horton Street, Halifax or at Park Road reception and up to 4pm on Wednesday 23 December at Westgate House reception.

Don’t forget to gift wrap the present and label whether it’s suitable for a man or a woman. Any additional presents will be given to the food bank to distribute and to people living in care homes who don’t have any family.

Please give as many presents as you can and help make sure that everybody in Calderdale gets a present this year!
