Everyone likes a box set for Christmas - and we’ve delivered eight of them to help ensure our older friends have a festive time to remember!

We’ve once again teamed up with Age Cymru to provide gift boxes for older people living in care homes in our community. Kind-hearted employees joined the initiative last year, and it was such a success we wanted to help out for a second time. 

Age Cymru is the national charity for older people in Wales. With its ethos ‘No one should have no one to turn to,’ it delivers gift boxes to care home residents who have no close family to visit over the festive period. Knowing that our donations can help make a huge difference to an older person, we filled the boxes with toiletries, chocolates, biscuits, games, puzzles and hats, scarves and gloves, and took them to the charity’s HQ earlier this month. 

ActiveQuote sales support manager Tracy Carwardine said: “On our arrival, the staff were friendly, helpful and extremely grateful for our donations. It was also very pleasing when we carried our donations into the storage room, where we there were already piles on top of piles of boxes. It’s such a warming feeling that so many people and businesses have got behind an amazing cause.”

In 2019, we have raised hundreds of pounds for charities including Children in Need, prostate cancer and Cancer Research UK, as well as highlighting important issues on National Simplicity Day and World Oceans Day. Stay tuned to find out which causes we support in 2020!
