Could you help make an elderly resident’s Christmas?

Huddersfield care home staff are appealing for people to send Christmas cards to their residents.

The festive holidays can be a lonely time for those with no family and friends to celebrate with, says Aden Lodge Care Home manager Kim Hardy.

So the home, on Long Lane, Clayton West, is asking the community to consider sending a Christmas card.

Kim said: “Staff do everything they can to make Christmas a special time of year for residents, while providing the care they need.

“A simple Christmas card to our residents will help make their Christmas that much more special.

“Many of our residents don’t have family and friends anymore and a card will make all the difference.

“We’d like to receive as many cards as possible to show our residents they are not forgotten this Christmas and are still part of the wider community.”

Anyone interested in sending a Christmas card should address it to:
