Case Studies

Christmas is the saddest day of the year as they are very alone. Many of their adult children now live out of London due to housing costs or availability.

100 days to Christmas!

Woman smililingWe also want you to share your #100waysin100days ideas over on Facebook and Twitter.

In the meantime, here are our first 10 suggestions, with 90 more to come before Christmas Day arrives once again! They may seem small, but the impact can be huge!

  • Smile at a stranger
  • Hold a door open for somebody
  • Help someone put their shopping into their car at a supermarket
  • Tell local people who struggle to get out all about a local event you’ve discovered
  • Check on any unwell neighbours, and if needs be pop to the shop for a few essentials for them
  • Introduce an elderly neighbour to a tablet – maybe Skype a grandchild.
  • Lend someone one of your favourite books with no expectation of receiving anything in return
  • Make too much food for dinner so you can share the leftovers with a neighbour who may have trouble cooking
  • If you see somebody struggling with a pram at a set of steps, don’t hesitate to offer your help
  • Introduce yourself to a new neighbour and see if they would like a nice cup of tea and a proper chat

See, we told you they were simple, but wouldn’t it be nice if we all took a bit more time to do more of the things above.

If you do manage any of our first ten, we’d love to hear about it over on our Facebook and Twitter channels!
