Dean Russell MP Watford joins Christmas Kindness project

Watford's MP joined Watford based charity Small Acts of Kindness to wrap Christmas boxes for elderly people across Hertfordshire.

The charity provides bags of appropriate items such as a Christmas card and beautifully hand wrapped gifts.

While such gift bags are at heart of the charity’s work, the core benefit is helping older people to cope with their loneliness and isolation and helping them connect with their communities.

Since Small Acts of Kindness first began in 2014, they have reached over 26,000 older people in Hertfordshire, many of whom are cold, lonely and isolated.
