Islington Christmas Hamper Appeal to boost community spirit
Published on 23/11/2012

A luxury hamper could help people who spend the festive season by themselves to feel less lonely this Christmas.

According to a new survey by the BBC, one-quarter of Londoners wish for some more company, while one-third of people over the age of 65 said there is either little or no sense of community in their area.

To help spread a bit more joy, the Islington Tribune is calling for nearby residents to provide donations to its Hamper Appeal, which is planning to show that local people are willing to stop and look out for their neighbours.

Single mum Colette Downey admitted she found it difficult to recover from post-natal depression because of loneliness, adding: "A mum can't really help another mum. They have their own children. I was quite isolated. Being on my own, I felt quite despairing and lonely."

The news provider stated a Christmas hamper could mean the world to an older person on December 25th, while one-parent families will also benefit from saving a bit of cash.
