Christmas Is A Time Of Giving, They Say…

…which is why, if you’ve a few quid going spare, this appeal might be a good one to choose:

Christmas can be a particularly lonely time of year for care home residents and this is your chance to bring them a bit of sparkle and friendship.This year we have hosted 36 parties for over 120 older people and over 125 volunteers at four Tower Hamlets care homes. We have had requests from many care homes to take our cocktail parties to them, and next year we will be reaching more isolated older people by working with two new care homes.

Buy a resident a glass of sherry, or a delicious fruit cocktail now, and help us to continue to bring fun and glamour to care homes!

Throw a cocktail party for a £100 or buy:

bottles of wine at £5

some beers at £5

trays of fruit cocktails at £6

bottles of Sherry at £7

a round of G & Ts or a medley of mixers at £10

an assortment of crisps and snacks at £10

It’ll please some old folks at Christmas. And, even more importantly,  it’ll be one in the eye for the rancid, bansturbating moralisers at Alcohol Concern!

*raises glass*

Cheers!

    Balls to all that – I think we’ve got enough in stock to see us through …..
    Whisky, beer, white port (bugger – run out, drunk it all!), wine, champers, even some nice cider.
    I am a life member of CAMRA, after all!
