The sale of handmade items, including tree decorations, wreaths and candles, created at White Lodge care home in Braydon Road helped to fund hampers.

There was also a donation box at the care home.

General Manager Ramona Gherendi said: “Residents, their relatives and staff have all been so supportive by purchasing or donating items.  It meant that we could donate a number of hampers to Purton Age Concern.”

The hampers were carefully put together by residents and Tina Hughes, Senior Activity Coordinator, and presented by Tina and Ramona 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. 

White Lodge is run by Barchester Healthcare, one of the UK’s largest care providers, and can be contacted on 01666 860381.
