Present for a Pensioner 2021

A Present for a Pensioner changes many lives at Christmas, raising thousands every year to provide luxury hampers to those provide to those who would be isolated on Christmas.

We are absolutely delighted to present the 2021 edition of a Present for a Pensioner! This year, our scheme has been embraced like never before in our wonderful community, with local businesses, charities and individuals getting progressively involved. We were humbled to have received recognition from external individuals, such as the Deputy Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care. With local film crews, news coverage, editorials and our community supporting our annual scheme, we were able to deliver thousands worth of luxury hampers to people who wouldn't normally receive a gift at Christmas, or who may suffer from loneliness.

What does the event include?

A Present for a Pensioner provides luxury hampers for those who wouldn't normally receive a gift at Christmas. We approach local businesses who would like to donate a small sum and then create a beautiful present for those who are less fortunate in our community.

External Recognition:

Deborah Ivanova, Deputy Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care in the South said:

“The Christmas season can be a time of loneliness for vulnerable people. Reaching out to them with the annual “present for a pensioner” project is something to applaud. It is lovely to see such a wonderful project, letting those people trying to live an independent life know that they are not alone and there is a wider community out there ready to support and befriend them. This is something to commend.”
