Eastlake care home in Godalming is the focus of a local community project in the run up to Christmas.
Local lady Gemma Mcmurtry has decided to call on the local community to help give a special Christmas to all the residents at Eastlake by donating gifts.
Gemma Mcmurtry said: “I’m asking the community to all pull together to donate a gift towards one of our shoebox Christmas packages however big or small, to help put a smile on someone else’s face this Christmas.”
Eastlake Home Manager Linda Grout said: “I’m so over the moon and proud of Gemma for thinking about our residents, and helping us make this Christmas magical for them.
“Our care home offers suppport to a wide range of people, from those who need assistance and a friendly face for support to those who have had a stroke, Parkinson’s disease, dementia or mental health issues.
“Everyone is encouraged to live life to the full as they are all young at heart.
“Having the community involved in the shoe box appeal really does show the true meaning of Christmas spirit.
“I would like to say a huge thank you to Gemma and everyone in the community for getting on board with this course.”
If you would like to help please drop all gifts to Anchor’s Eastlake care home, Nightingale Road, Godalming, Surrey, GU7 3AG.
All gifts will be very welcome and accepted with a big thank you.
