Age Concern staff and volunteers are Santa’s Elves for a day

Christmas is a time for giving, and we were excited to don Christmas hats and become Santa’s elves, delivering more than 50 Christmas Gift bags to isolated and lonely seniors. These seniors, who might not otherwise receive any gifts this Christmas, were so pleased to have a visit and a gift.

Some of the thanks included a text from one of the seniors: “Thank you so so much for the gift. Wow, it was a big parcel, not a little one! I had fun pulling each item out of the bag. I felt like I did as a child waking up in the morning and looking at what Father Christmas had brought me! Please express my thanks to Age Concern and other businesses for their thoughtfulness. Happy Christmas to all at Age Concern.”

Everyone enjoyed sharing a moment together, and there were lots of laughs and connections made.


Thank you for your support Summerset Retirement Villages, Hamish from CK & Co. Realty and AMP!
