Age Concern has begun to hand out their Christmas hampers to beneficiaries
at their centre in la Siesta. On Tuesday 5 th December those receiving their
hamper of tea time treats included Pam Creasey, Glenys Doyle, Joan
Sugden, Ella Blacknall, Ann King, Carmen and Ken Jenkins and Joyce. Each
hamper contained a variety of items including a bottle of wine, biscuits,
panattone and chocolates.
The presentation was in front of countless friends in the packed centre at
Calle Paganini in La Siesta. The daily coffee mornings are a very popular
facility provided by the centre which has an incredible reputation for being
welcoming. This is particularly important for those who are new to the area.
Pam Creasey was one of those receiving a hamper and for her Age Concern
has been a lifeline. Pam reached an all time low after becoming a widow.
Feeling lonely and that no one cared about her, joining Age Concern rescued
her from loneliness and desolation.
Pam is not the only one that has found Age Concern to be essential to their
wellbeing. The charity offers an open invitation for anyone of 50 years old and
over. If you would like more information you can pop into their centre or call
966 786 887.
