Residents at Thorn Springs care home in Houghton Regis, operated by Ideal Carehomes, are getting in the spirit of Christmas by helping local families via the Salvation Army’s Christmas Present Appeal.
Opened in October this year, Thorn Springs recently welcomed their first residents, who are excited to spend their first Christmas in the brand-new luxury home.
Each year, the Salvation Army collect new and unwrapped Christmas presents to distribute to local children who might not otherwise receive one.
This year, staff and residents from Thorn Springs are determined to offer their support by asking their neighbours to donate Christmas toys, which can be dropped-off at the home on Collie Place.
A Salvation Army spokesperson said, ‘We are very grateful to Ideal Carehomes for supporting our Christmas Present Appeal. It makes such a difference to people who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford Christmas at all, and to children who wouldn’t have any presents to open at Christmas without it.’
In mid-December, the residents at Thorn Springs will take the gifts to donate to the Salvation Army church in Dunstable.
Katie Hughes, the Home Manager at Thorn Springs, hopes that the Houghton Regis community will join them in supporting the Christmas Present Appeal. She continued,
‘At Thorn Springs we are always willing to throw ourselves into supporting the community, and we can’t wait to help create special moments for children on Christmas Day. We are thrilled to be able to help local families during such a beautiful festive period.’
All are welcome to donate new and unwrapped toys to the Christmas Present Appeal. Please drop all donations at Thorn Springs care home, Collie Place, Houghton Regis, Dunstable, LU5 6TW.
