We would like to thank our Parents at Seedlings who helped us collect together some Christmas Gift Bags for the WWCC (Wellesbourne & Walton Community Cares). We received the lovely email below from them –
On behalf of the residents in Wellesbourne and Walton, we would like to pass on a massive thank you to everyone who was involved with the Christmas Gift Bag initiative in December.
We received over 220 gift bags, 39 from Seedlings Nursery, which were distributed to local people who were facing a difficult Christmas.
The response on doorsteps, and from the many thank you cards and letters which we have received, has been heart-warming. We wanted to share with you some of the comments we have received in letters and cards;
“Thank you so much for the super Christmas hamper in a gift bag, I did so much enjoy receiving the treats”
“I would like to say a great big thank you for the wonderful goodies you gave to me, it was a fabulous surprise”
“Thank you very much for the Christmas gift bag, and the addition of the TV times was most welcome!”
“I was visited today by someone who I hadn’t seen before, but the voice sounded familiar, it was my friend who picks up the phone for a chat (telephone befriender). For someone like me, living on my own after losing my husband of over 50 years, it’s a few minutes of comfort that someone cares. Today he delivered a ‘hamper’ – what a glorious feast! Thank you to all the organisers, the people who donated the goodies and of course those who deliver”.
“Thank you so much for the surprise I received, I thoroughly enjoyed going through the goodies, it really made my day, as up till then it had been an awful day”.
“A big thank you to all at Wellesbourne Cares, what a lovely surprise when I opened my door to a lovely lady with a big smile on her face and a gift bag full of goodies. An angel is disguise! I’m not going to be alone at Christmas as there are 200 lovely volunteers. Best wishes to you all.”
“Thank you so much for the gift bag. It means a lot. Thank you for caring.”
“I received a gift bag and it made my Christmas! Thank you.”
“Thank you very much for the wonderful Christmas gift bag which I received, I would be very grateful if you could convey my thanks to Seedlings Day nursery for their very sweet Christmas card”
