Care Home Gift Box Appeal (Richmond)

Why we need your help

Some elderly care home residents do not have family or friends. We want to give them a Christmas Gift Box this season, so they feel valued and loved by their community.

Your donation will go directly towards buying and distributing the gifts below to care home residents in the London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames:

  • Toiletries, especially shower gel and fragrant talcs
  • Toiletry bags
  • Socks, either bed socks or other socks
  • Small packets of tissues
  • Small puzzle books
  • Colouring books and pencils, pens or crayons
  • Little games (e.g. dominoes, cards, etc)
  • Small teddy bears
  • Soft hair brushes
  • Arts and crafts

Your donation will make a real difference to brightening a care home resident's Christmas at this difficult time. Thank you.


Who are we?

Embracing Age is a charity based in Twickenham. Normally we are training up an army of volunteers to befriend care home residents in person, and we have volunteers placed in every care home in the London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames. Sadly that came to a sudden, hopefully temporary, stop due to the pandemic. Instead we are finding other ways to support care home residents and staff, including sourcing PPE in the early days of the pandemic, providing android tablets to care homes to aid video calls, and creating thank you gifts for care home staff.
