CPM Citizens get Christmas Celebrations A huge thanks to The Asda Foundation
Cerebral Palsy Midlands (CPM) and Asda Community Champion Katey who works at the local Barnes Hill store, helped secure a £1,075 donation from the Asda Foundation to help fund Christmas Meals for our Citizens this year.
We were successful for a donation of £875 in our 'Bringing Communities Back Together' application to The Asda Foundation. And, once more, we were successful in Asda's digital green token giving programme for a further donation of £200.
Development Officer for CPM, Sarah Lilly said: “During the COVID pandemic our citizens were without social interaction and very much isolated. Many of them really struggled with the loneliness and lack of social interaction. This year we are so pleased and really grateful that we have had the support from 'The Asda Foundation' to bring our community back together this Christmas.
For some of our people who live alone, without our intervention they would not get Christmas Dinner and we want to ensure that every person feels valued and gets a better Christmas this year."
CPM intend to use this money in giving Christmas meals to all of our citizens, trustees, staff and volunteers. Whilst we are still in our phased re-opening, we plan to do these over three days before we break up for our two week break over Christmas week commencing Monday 13th December 2021. The Christmas Meals will be hot traditional Christmas Meals with turkey and stuffing with Christmas Hats, Crackers and music together with their friends and community. We will most certainly encourage people to wear their Christmas Jumpers! We want to make sure everyone is in the best Christmas spirit.
