Information sent on behalf of Durham Constabulary


PCSO 6390 Adrian Richards from Chester le Street Neighbourhood Police Team recently visited Picktree Care Home, to deliver a selection of donated gifts to the residents. This has become a tradition, but due to the COVID-19 outbreak, he did not think it would be possible, leaving many elderly people without gifts to open on Christmas Day.

After some careful planning with the care home to address any COVID issues (gifts to be quarantined for 72 hours) and granted by Santa, he was able to do a smaller version of the traditional gift drop off.

2020 has been a very difficult year for us all but especially for the elderly who live in our local community.

Please spend a thought this Christmas to think of the elderly and lonely in our community over the festive period and hopefully we will be able to get back to normal next year.

A big thank you to anyone who donated gifts this year but a special mention for Sharon (Community Champion from TESCO), County Councillors Beaty and Alan Bainbridge, Store Manager Gabbby from Sainsburys and Helen Tindale and her kind family.

We hope everyone has a fantastic Christmas and a Happy New Year from Chester le Street NPT
