The most important Christmas Card you’ll send this year
For many of us, exchanging cards with family and friends is an important part of the build up to Christmas. But for some older people, Christmas can be a sad time of year, as the number of cards they send and receive gets less.
Will you share the joy of Christmas with an older person cared for by Methodist Homes (MHA) by writing just one extra Christmas Card?
We will provide Christmas greetings cards for church members to write their own message of good will and friendship. Please contact Lesley.email@example.com or call 0113 272 8466 for your Christmas Friendship pack, detailing how many cards, or complete this form.
Please support MHA’s Christmas Friendship Appeal
If you can, please consider making a donation of any amount, to support our work this Christmas. It is through the generosity of our supporters that we can offer additional support and alternative therapies free of charge; services such as chaplaincy, music therapy and Live at Home community services that help make life better for older people.
To make a donation please go to: www.justgiving.com/christmasfriendshipappeal Alternatively you can donate using your mobile phone by texting CFAP70 £5 to 70070. This will make a £5 donation to MHA. You can donate by calling freephone: 0800 085 6962 or by post to: MHA Freepost 499 Derby DE1 9BR. Please make cheques payable to MHA. Thank you for your support.
How your gift could help:
£6 could help us provide a week’s ‘Telebuddies’ service, providing a regular phone call to check on isolated older people living alone.
£10 could provide an hour’s chaplaincy support in one of our care homes.
£30 could fund an individual music therapy session giving someone with dementia the opportunity to express their feelings.
Celebrating 70 years since our formation has made 2013 a very special year for MHA, and we continue to be grateful for all those who support us in any way.
