Whilst most of us will be tucked up on our sofas, stuffed full of Christmas food, we’ll be taking the opportunity to put the spotlight on those who are busy helping others, and those who spend Christmas alone. This week’s theme is ‘Thinking’. A survey recently released by Age UK reveals that a quarter of elderly people across the UK feel lonely over Christmas.

We want to thank the individuals who make Christmas special for those who are lonely, vulnerable or suffering from illness or disability. If you know someone who is spending their Christmas helping other, we want to know. We would like to say thank you!
