Staff at the Havering Daily joined members of the Take A Knife Save A Life charity to hand out free meals to the elderly who were on their own on Christmas day.
Tapestry, a Hornchurch based charity, look after the elderly in Havering and this year were unable to host a Christmas ‘get to together’ due to the Covid restrictions. Instead, food was taken to their houses so that no one went without a hot meal over the Christmas period.
Taksal founder Stephen Gowers and administrator Robert Dean spent Christmas day visiting the elderly to cheer them up with some festive spirit and deliver one hot meal for Christmas day and a cold meal for Boxing day. The team made their way across Havering with a a ho ho ho and a Father Christmas hat and beard to put a smile on the face of every elderly person they saw.
Due to the tier 4 restrictions, the volunteers remained on the doorstep but were still able to sprinkle some Christmas magic to our elderly residents.
Tapestry are an amazing charity who look after our elderly residents who are often alone and with no family. Taksal staff are great community heroes who are always on hand to help those in need across Havering and now Clacton as well.
Well done to all for making this a fantastic day!
