Age Cymru is urging the north west Wales public to donate festive gift boxes

AGE CYMRU is urging the public in north west Wales to donate festive gift boxes to help make Christmas a little brighter for lonely older people this year.

Age Cymru’s chief executive, Victoria Lloyd says: “This Christmas many older people will be alone, with no company and nothing to look forward to. The festive period can be particularly difficult for people living with ill health or that have been recently bereaved. This year large numbers of older people are also facing soaring energy prices and high inflation. We think that a gift box full of festive cheer will show that someone still cares about them.” So

The charity is asking the public to fill a wrapped gift box with festive gifts and attach a label indicating whether the gift box is for a male, female or generic.

Simple gifts such as gloves, hats, scarves, and books would be ideal alongside traditional festive treats such as shop-bought chocolates, mince pies and cakes.

Please don’t include personal information about yourself and don’t seal your gift box but secure it with a rubber band around the closed box.

Please drop your giftbox to our team at Age Cymru Gwynedd a Mon, Y Cartref, Bontnewydd, Caernarfon, Gwynedd, LL54 7UW between Monday 28 November and Thursday 1 December 2022 – 9am to 4pm.
