Local care home donates Christmas hampers to charity supporting elderly people

By Jessica Durston - 12 January 2023


Staff and residents at White Lodge care home say they have a long-running link with local charity Purton and District Age Concern, and recently donated a selection of Christmas hampers.

Staff members, residents and families representing White Lodge care home in Braydon, donated a range of Christmas foods that went into creating special hampers for the charity.

The hampers were said to have been carefully put together by residents, and the White Lodge team presented the hampers to Peter Berry, Chairman of Purton and District Age Concern. 

Peter and his team distributed these to older people in the local community in time for Christmas. 

Ramona Gherendi, General Manager at White Lodge care home said: “Residents, their relatives and staff have all been so supportive by donating items and the residents greatly enjoyed putting the hampers together.  It meant that we could donate a number of hampers to Purton and District Age Concern.”

White Lodge is run by Barchester Healthcare - one of the UK’s largest care providers - which says it is committed to delivering high-quality care across its care homes and hospitals. White Lodge provides nursing, residential and respite care.

Purton and District Age Concern offers its services to individuals aged 65 and over. The charity aims to improve the quality of life for local older residents.
