Ableworld Easter Egg Appeal

This entry was posted in General March 5, 2018

Almost half of all older people in care homes are depressed and most believe that the condition is now a "normal part of ageing” according to a report commissioned a few years ago by NHS England. Here at Ableworld our primary aim is to make a positive impact on a person’s life, whether it be supplying them with our quality products, or engaging through local community events.

Following on from our highly successful ‘Ableworld Elderly Shoebox appeal’ at Christmas, which resulted in staff, customers and local charities donating shoeboxes full of gifts to Royal Stoke & County Hospital, Ableworld have decided once again to launch an uplifting public appeal. Our aim this Easter time is to make a small difference to Elderly people in care, many of whom are without family members who are able to visit them. 

We are appealing to the local public to make a small gesture and purchase an extra Easter egg when shopping, which will then be collated and donated to many elderly people in local nursing and residental homes. We believe that a small token, like an Easter egg, will make such a big impact on a number of elderly people’s lives this Easter time. The eggs can be donated in your local Ableworld store and will be given out to residents at local Nursing or Residential Homes in numerous locations close to our 34 UK stores. With your help, together we can make an elderly persons Easter extra special this year.

How Can You Help?

We are appealing for all types of chocolate Easter Eggs, big or small, to be dropped off at your local Ableworld store any time before Wednesday 28th March. Our friendly store staff will ensure they are hand delivered to a number of local Homes to be given out before Easter.

We would love to involve as many people as possible in this great initiative, so please encourage your friends and relatives to get involved. Feel free to share our post on Social Media and we would love to see any pictures of you getting involved by adding them to our Facebook page @ableworld, if you are donating an Easter egg this year.

We look forward to updating you with our grand total and some pictures of donating your generous Easter gifts to local care homes. 

Ableworld stores include; Burton, Chester, Congleton, Crewe, Hanley, Llandudno, Nantwich, Newport, Northwich, Oswestry, Reading, Rhyl, Shrewsbury, Stockport and Wrexham.
