Thank you for giving the gift of a connected Christmas with our More the Merrier campaign in 2020.
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, showing seniors that they really did matter.
We did this by:
Hosting a virtual Christmas brunch
Providing many gifts under the tree
Providing food vouchers
Providing personal care products
Providing travel vouchers
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. The Virtual Christmas Brunch was an absolute hit - a real gathering on Christmas Day for many who would otherwise have been alone. Our hosts loved it too.
Stories of connection
I just had a call from client Carole and she was overcome with gratitude that she had received a hamper. She said she is not used to receiving anything like that. She has lost her husband this year and so is missing him a lot and receiving the hamper has brought her to tears - from a member of the Feros Care, Care Team.
I would like to praise Feros Care for putting on such an event to brighten Christmas Day for so many people who due to different circumstances would have spent the day alone. It brought some Christmas cheer to many lonely people and Feros Care are to be congratulated for their care. I would like to express my sincere gratitude. Thank you.
Valerie was absolute!y delighted to receive her hamper today. She couldn't wait to pop her hat on!! Partially sighted Valerie has no family and she mentioned Feros Care and her blind/partially sighted group were like family. She only had wonderful things to say about the service she receives from Feros Care and the people she deals with - from the Christmas Elf who delivered her hamper.
David just received a Feros Care Christmas hamper. He was so excited. We truly made a difference to his life - from a member of the Feros Care, Care Team.
