Third Day of ubu Christmas Sparkle Celebration
Sparkling in Spalding
To celebrate this Christmas, people served and enabled by ubu in Spalding made plans to spread some seasonal cheer and sparkle to some of their older, more vulnerable neighbours in the local community.
Towards the end of November Jane and Roger decided to get busy sourcing and packing a Christmas hamper each for a few of our neighbours.
Shopping can be difficult for some of our neighbours at times especially coming up to Christmas with everywhere so busy so we thought we would kick start their Christmas shopping off with a hamper of goodies. We wanted to make sure that they have the basics in place to have a sparkling celebration at this busy time of year.
One of our neighbours, Richard, used to come over regularly to visit us and enjoy a cup of coffee and a chat, but he hasn’t been able to get around to see us recently. His health has become very poor and now he is reliant on a team of carers to make sure that he has the things he needs because he can’t leave his house.
Another neighbour, Brian, who is sight-impaired, also lives across the street with his assistance dogs. He has always supported our fundraising events for causes we feel strongly about like MacMillan Cancer and Dementia care. Like Richard, he has always been a good friend to us all. So it felt really nice to be able to give some sparkle back at this time of year so that he would know just how much we appreciate him.
