Advent Angels – Day 17

Today’s Advent Angels deliveries were all about the ladies.

We were so excited to surprise Mrs Rebecca Hall, Portland’s oldest lady at 103yrs. Her daughter Chris nominated her for being the most wonderful mum who never asks for anything for herself. Thanks to Amy Roff for the perfect Christmas cake, Maggie Yates for the lovely plant and Janet Newton for the beautiful hand quilted knee blanket.

Mrs Mary Roberts was also surprised to see us, especially as she has now been bed bound for some time, only seeing her carers and daughter. We were delighted to be able to break up the boredom with a quick, socially distanced visit and some prezzies to show her the community still care and are thinking of all our older residents who have been isolated for so long now.

Finally we popped some bits to Mrs Shelia Hall, who was nominated by her friend Sarah Hunter as a, ‘Thank you,’ for all the help she gave her whilst Sarah was incapacitated with a broken arm, despite dealing with the grief of losing her eldest son. Wishing them all a very Merry Christmas from their community.
