Show your support of those who are looking after a loved one this Christmas!

Maxine Lester, the founder of Maxine Lester Lettings & Property Management is supporting Caring Together a charity who supports families of all ages across Cambridgeshire, Perterborough and Norfolk.

While the Coronavirus pandemic has affected us all, there has been a very specific impact on people for act as a carer for a family member or friend.  It has brought additional hardships and challenges for them and their whole families – from young carers, right through to those who are elderly.

The demands of caring for a loved one have increased significantly, especially for those who have had family members shielding for long periods. There has been additional stress and an increased sense of isolation, the education of young carers has been affected and many have had their work and financial situations significantly affected.

 

 A £25 donation could help buy a Christmas lunch for a carer.

You can make a difference this Christmas by contributing to the Caring Together charity, where they are putting together Christmas hampers,  with food and seasonal goodies, to be given to carers in St Ives and the local area, in order to spread some festive cheer.

Maxine is working in partnership with Caring Together, and is hoping to raise £2,500 from their fundraising and will then be helping to deliver the hampers to the families. Your donation will make a huge difference and mean more families can enjoy a better Christmas. PLUS they will match all of your donations, so please be generous!

Maxine comments “We support Caring together because we had a childhood and wanted to do something for kids that spend their childhood looking after a family member. If we can provide the means to give these young carers an outlet to talk about their issues or to be able to have a break from their caring role then that is the right thing to do.”

Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas, from Maxine Lester and Agents Giving.
