Toc H Gifts for the Elderly

Publication: Evesham Journal, 4 December 1980

Members of Broadway Toc H are preparing for the twentieth time to do the necessary work in providing gifts for the senior residents of the village this Christmas.

They have made up about 2,800 parcels, the contents of groceries locally purchased, packed during a Saturday evening and delivered the following Sunday afternoon.

The financing of this yearly effort was achieved with money raised by every sporting and social organisation in the village plus efforts by the branch itself. About £3,000 has been collected.

Due to the increased cost of food the gifts for the last three years have taken the form of cash vouchers exchangeable at local grocers.
