Community Christmas Cheer

We love it when the community comes together to give a little Christmas cheer. This year, Sophie Ritson has done just that.

Sophie, a teacher from Cramlington, is no stranger to helping others. Last year, she organised a Secret Santa campaign to spread some happiness across the borough. Families throughout North Tyneside and Northumberland got together to provide presents to EveryDay Care & Support customers.

This year, Sophie was inundated with messages from families who wanted to get involved again.

With the help of her sons, Joshua and Freddie, Sophie has rallied the community once again to provide almost three hundred presents to older adults across North Tyneside and Northumberland.

Group Chief Executive, Dawn McNally said, “The pandemic has continued to have a huge impact on older people’s social interaction. This simple act of kindness will mean so much.

“I’d like to thank Sophie and the rest of the community for this amazing donation. Now more than ever, no one should have no one. Building Neighbourhood Networks is so important and Sophie is helping us do that.”
