Christmas Wrapping!

On the final week on the run up to Christmas, the LGN elves have been busy packing Christmas food hampers for our clients. The packs include food essentials, chocolatey treats and mince pies to be enjoyed over Christmas – and we have some lovely hand-written cards too, for those who may be spending Christmas alone. Thanks to our trustees for helping organise, source, pack and deliver the gifts, we know all that hard work will be really appreciated, especially during such a difficult Christmas. We wish you all the best for the New Year – let’s hope it’s a bit brighter! xxx
