Over the past few weeks Help on Your Doorstep's fantastic Good Neighbours Scheme team, Emma, Val and Nicky, have been out delivering festive bags of cheer to those Islington residents who need it most!

In November the team put out an appeal for donations including food items, toys, and gifts that would be used to create the packages. Many people from Islington and the surrounding boroughs came to the Help on Your Doorstep offices to kindly drop off their donations. The team would like to thank everyone who did so!

The GNS team were then able to use the donations to create many Festive Bags of Cheer with the items and money donated. Each 'bag' contained a variety of festive treats such as crackers, candles and mince pies!

Val, Nicky and Emma then took the festive bags of cheer out to Islington Residents who needed it most.

We have received some brilliant feedback from recipients of the bags of cheer including one lady who said: 

"Thank you so much Nicky, I collected the hampers this morning. My nan was over the moon with her hamper and she said to say thank you loads. You and your wonderful team really are all superstars!"
