Age Concern Isle of Man collected 40 Christmas hampers from our Douglas offices on Monday, which will be delivered to older people in the local community throughout December. This is the 15th consecutive year that we and our sister company Nedgroup Investments have created festive hampers for distribution to those vulnerable and in need on the island.

Volunteers generously gave their time to create the luxury hampers, which were packed with essential items and Christmas treats. And in line with our sustainability initiatives, all the packaging used was made from 100% recyclable and biodegradable materials.

In addition to providing the hampers, 100 fleece blankets were also donated to the charity to distribute to those in need.

HR Business Partner Lynn Kelly, who began the project back in 2006, said: “Age Concern Isle of Man does amazing work to support and improve the health and well-being of older people in our community. Christmas can be a particularly difficult time for some and we know the hampers and blankets often make a huge difference, particularly when financial choices have to be made between turning on the heating and spending money on food. We are delighted to have been able to support the work of Age Concern over the past 15 years.”

Maureen Cowbourne, CEO of Age Concern Isle of Man, added: “We are always delighted to receive these wonderful Christmas hampers from Nedbank Private Wealth and Nedgroup Investments. They are always beautifully presented and provide lovely gifts for those who may not have family and friends around them at Christmas.”
