The holiday season can be a difficult time for the people we support as they miss home and loved ones. So we were really thrilled to be able to put smiles on the faces of some local refugees when we delivered two minibus loads of Christmas hampers to 17 families in and around Ipswich recently. All the hampers and gifts were generously donated to us by organisations and individuals – a huge thank you to Farlingaye High School, FIND (Families in Need), St Felix Church, Felixstowe, and all the fabulous people who dropped off presents at our office, and to Ipswich School for so kindly giving us the use of their minibus and helping to play Father Christmas on the day! The families were really touched and grateful for the gesture, and the children especially appreciated the gifts.
