Age Cymru Gwent is once again appealing to the public to fill a wrapped shoe box with gifts in our aim to help make Christmas a special time for older people.


In line with our ethos ‘No one should have no one to turn to’, many older people have no close family to visit over the festive period and we hope that having a gift to open may make a huge difference.

How you can help

  • Find a shoe box - Wrap the box and lid separately in Christmas paper, or you can use a festive pre-printed box Fill with gifts - see our suggestions below (list is not exhaustive)
  • Attach a label marking whether your gift is for a male, female or generic Please don't include personal information about yourself.

Delivery of gift boxes

Drop off your gift box – please don't seal your gift box but place a rubber band around the closed box. You are now ready to deliver your gift box to our team at Age Cymru Gwent, 12 Baneswell Road, Newport, NP20 4BP.

Alternatively, we have a number of local Age Cymru partners and shops across Wales who are more than willing to accept your gift boxes.

Please ensure you deliver your boxes by Friday 6 December 2019
