Easter gift bags have been given to older people in Stannington. Cards were made by local children and Christ Church members knitted and sewed chicks.
The gifts were taken to three residential settings within the parish - The White House, Manor House and Roscoe Court. They have also been given to older people who live in their own homes. Some of these older people, many of whom live alone, have not left their homes since the beginning of the first lockdown over a year ago.
As lockdown eases, some may venture outside but others may not have the confidence to leave their homes and may value continued support.
