Don't be lonely this Christmas

A care home in Hyde is inviting older people in the community to join in their Christmas Day celebrations as part of a campaign to reduce loneliness.

Staff and residents at Anchor’s Hatton Grange on Oldham Street have organised a fun day of Christmas cheer for older people living alone in the town. 

They now hope older people will get in touch so they can enjoy the festivities at the care home.

The guests will join everyone at Hatton Grange for Christmas lunch, take part in the festive activities, including games and sing-alongs, and then be taken home when they are ready, all free of charge.

Angela Brown, manager of Hatton Grange said: “Christmas can be an incredibly lonely time if you live on your own so we wanted to extend the warmth and companionship of our lovely home to anyone facing the day alone.

“We’ll pick them up in a taxi on the morning and they can spend all day with us and we’ll then organise for them to get taken home.”

If you or someone you know would like to join Hatton Grange residents on Christmas Day, please call manager Angela Brown on 0161 368 4484. 

Places are limited and will be filled on a first come first served basis.
