Alone at Christmas?

Christmas is just around the corner, and once again HertsHelp is encouraging residents who may be spending it alone to take part in community activities.

Christmas can be a difficult time for some people, but a quick call to HertsHelp can put them in touch with volunteering opportunities and social events and help them beat any Christmas blues.

Last year 78-year-old Harry from Sandridge called HertsHelp after reading an article about the Alone at Christmas campaign. Harry said: “I rang up and was invited along to the Abbeyfield Christmas lunch. I had a really nice time, much better than I thought! I could have stayed for tea in the evening if I had wanted to. I’d definitely do it again this year.”

If you would like to know what opportunities there are in your area to join others, either socially or as a volunteer, please contact HertsHelp on 0300 123 4044 or email
