We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of shoppers at Asda Eastleigh. Monday 19 November saw the launch of our trolley requesting food and clothing for the people we support via our SCA Care organisation at Christmas time.
We received over 1,000 donations that took a couple of bus trips in our trusty dial-a-ride bus to bring back to HQ for sorting before distributing to those in need via our Day Opportunities and Extra Care schemes.

We know that these donations will make a real difference to those we support, at what can be a difficult time of year for those most in need. Soup, Christmas food, warm hats and gloves were among the items distributed on Wednesday 19 December to the older people we support in Southampton and the surrounding areas.
