Thank you for helping us to make a positive difference to hundreds of people over the festive period. Thanks to the many generous donations of food and gifts from individuals, schools, businesses, corporations and government, we were able give presents to 380 children and over 200 hampers to local families, elderly people and people staying in shelters over Christmas. None of this would have been possible without the generosity of the many people and organisations who gave donations, and the volunteers who helped to sort the food and gifts for distribution.
Christmas can be a very tough time for some in our community, so we were delighted by the kindness of all those people who gave time and gifts – many of them anonymously – to share the Christmas spirit. Thank you, and our best wishes for 2017, from all of us at Somerville.
