Join us in spreading Christmas cheer to local carers

Maxine Lester staff in Christmas hatsThis Christmas we are delighted to have the support of Maxine Lester Lettings and Property Management who are working to spread cheer and goodwill to local carers, who deserve a gift to lift their spirits.

We know that Christmas can be an incredibly lonely time for many carers who are looking after someone they love who needs constant care. And Christmas is a time that is particularly affected by the demands of their caring role with festive activities made more difficult.

A carer was delighted to receive a Christmas cheer gift as a result of the fundraising done by the St Ives based business last year, she said, “I felt very emotional when I received my gift. I was feeling very down, and it was just what I needed.”

This year Maxine Lester Lettings and Property Management will be brightening carers days again by gifting them Christmas cheer gift packs full of goodies to lift their spirits and make them feel special. They are donating £1,000 of their own money and have set up a fundraising page for their appeal so you can also donate and mean more can be done to help carers.

Each £20 donated allows a Christmas gift pack full of goodies to be sent to a carer (any money not used for the Christmas Cheer gifts will go towards the wider work of Caring Together to support carers).

You can click here to go to their donations page to give your help and show your generosity.

Maxine and Matthew LesterMaxine Lester, director of Maxine Lester Lettings and Property Management said, “We know how Christmas is a time that brings unique challenges to carers.

“We have seen the difference the right support makes and how something as a simple as a gift of some Christmas cheer can give a real lift to someone looking after a family member or friend.

“We are delighted to be working with Caring Together to support carers again this Christmas.”

Nicky Newton, Caring Together fundraising manager said, “We help local carers of all ages in Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and Norfolk, with support, information and advice.  We tailor our services to the needs of the carer making sure they receive the support they need when the need it.

“We are delighted to have the support of Maxine Lester Lettings and Property Management once again, as we have seen before how they and their supporters have shown their generosity.

“Each donation will help us bring a little sparkle to carers this Christmas through the Christmas cheer stockings and other support we can give carers.”
