Despite some unique challenges presented this year, Haydon Wick Parish Council will continue to deliver its successful Christmas Parcel Scheme and spread some festive cheer and goodwill to residents in need across the Parish.
Haydon Wick Parish Council will be distributing over 160 Christmas parcels full of Christmas goodies to its residents this week. Staff and Councillors have worked hard to overcome any logistical challenges and ensure their community project continues to help those that live alone, are aged over 70 and live within the Parish.
Chairman of the Council Councillor Linda Brown told us: “Despite this being a difficult year for many, we have been overwhelmed at the generosity and record levels of donations we have received towards this community project. As a Parish, we are very proud that for over 30 years we have continued to support our residents in this way”.
The Council is as always humbled by the generosity of its volunteers and community groups who come together every year to help with this project and would like to pass on their thanks to: Morrisons, ASDA, Virgin Media, Bookers, N&B Foods and the Reedemed Christian Church of God for their very generous donations.
