A LOCAL CARE provider, Right at Home Mid Hampshire, has got together with Abbotswood Court Care Home to make and distribute 100 hampers for people living alone or who are feeling isolated.
The care home at Abbotswood, Romsey, which was already making 50 hampers, was contacted by Nick Turner, the managing director of Right at Home Mid Hampshire, who asked if Right at Home could sponsor an extra 50 of the “Hampers of Happiness” to be sent to people in need of a pick-me-up.
Since the beginning of November, Abbotswood Court Care Home has been offering a hamper a day to anyone wanting to nominate a friend, family member or someone they know or care for who might need a treat.
Home admissions advisor for Abbotswood, Annya Sait, said:
“Throughout the year Abbotswood Court enjoy being able to host many events and coffee mornings for the local community, but this year due to COVID we have been unable to do so.
Our residents, who have everything they need, recognise that there are many people who are on their own and for whom these hampers will be a lovely treat. It’s very rewarding for us to be able to do this.
There will be two names drawn from a hat each day from 1st November.
