The annual Christmas Shopping Event is where we give about 50 senior citizens the chance to do some shopping in Uxbridge town centre.

Students from local schools and colleges volunteer to accompany them and help them shop. Then we all meet up for lunch, presents and a sing-song at the Civic Centre. This year’s event was held on 19th November and was a great success. Here are some comments from guests and a few photos from last year’s event.

Lovely day – enjoyed immensely”

“Appreciated all the organisation beforehand. Had two very helpful young ladies from Bishop Ramsey – a credit to their school”

“A most enjoyable day out”

“I think what you all do is wonderful. Thank you”
