Christmas can be an incredibly difficult time of the year for older people who live on their own around Luton and Dunstable, she said adding ”Right now they are said to be about 450,000 older people who spend their Christmas period on their own with no family or friends to visit them during the festive season.”
This, according to Sajanga, should be a day to bring immense joy and laughter. It is therefore incredibly sad to note that many older men and women have to spend their Christmas utterly alone thereby feeling their isolation even more acutely, she said
”It’s not right that any one should suffer such horrible loneliness especially when they could be among friends. So we are here to offer that friendship,” said the Unika Boss.
Commenting on the prospect of the event, Everjoy Kurangwah, one of the Organisers added: ”It is therefore in this vein that we are appealing to well wishers to respond with an act of kindness hence we would appreciate any donations that could enable us hold this event,” she said
