Thank you for giving the gift of a connected Christmas with our More the Merrier campaign in 2021.

By doing so, you enabled us to change the lives of many vulnerable and/or isolated seniors.

We were able to create a connected Christmas for 288 people just like Valerie

“I was very grateful for the Christmas hamper that Feros Care delivered, it made me feel very special knowing they were thinking of me.” - Valerie

Hand delivered Christmas hampers

Many gifts under the tree were delivered in person by one of our Christmas elves, so we could give our lovely seniors the gift of some special one-on-one time and a Christmas natter as well as a hamper - they loved the company, and we loved making sure that no senior's Christmas went without connection.

Stories of connection

“Noeline burst into tears when she received the More the Merrier hamper. She is very isolated where she lives and could not write all her Christmas cards this year due to pain in her hands, which made her feel despondent. She said that this made all those feelings go away.” 
Noeline, Hamper Recipient
“Donald loved his Christmas Day phone call and chat. He told me all about the birds he encouraged into his garden and how they kept him company. He said how grateful he was for our support and that he hadn’t expected so much kindness. He made my day!”  
Donald, Phone Call Recipient
“Wendy was very emotional when she had her hamper delivered. She has never had anything like this done for her before and has been alone on Christmas for the last 36 years. She wanted me to tell everyone, thank you very much, it has made her Christmas.”
Wendy, Hamper Recipient
