Elves spread Christmas joy to people with learning disabilities in Warwickshire

SANTA’S elves have been out and about spreading festive cheer to people with learning disabilities in Warwickshire.

A team of volunteers from National Grid spent the day with Heart of England Mencap which began with wrapping Christmas presents and carol singing at the charity’s activity service Pathway, in Atherstone-on-Stour.

And some volunteers went on to Pathway in Studley to make decorations and food.

And the day of seasonal joy did not stop there when they all came together for a Christmas disco at Alcester Rugby Club.

Volunteer Donna Lee said: “We were so delighted to spend the day supporting Heart of England Mencap and helping bring Christmas cheer to its customers.

“This wonderful charity makes a huge difference to people with learning disabilities in the county and our volunteers really enjoyed being a part of this fantastic work.”

Fundraising manager Cath Errington thanked National Grid for its support.

She added: “For a small charity like ours this kind of support makes such a huge difference and has a big impact on local lives.”

Heart of England Mencap supports individuals with learning disabilities across Warwickshire and Worcestershire.
