A charity is offering people the chance to re-gift unwanted Christmas presents to the elderly.

Small Acts of Kindness, based in Hertfordshire, have launched its campaign asking people to donate any gifts they no longer use.

These gifts will then be given to elderly people later this year for Christmas as the charity says many old people may not receive anything.

The charity sends gift packages to help the elderly who may be lonely especially during winter.

These packages often include a fleecy blankets, socks and gloves.

The charity said during the recent festive period they were overwhelmed by requests for Christmas gifts for older people who would otherwise have nothing.

Founder of Smalls Acts of Kindness Lynne Misner added: “We are asking if you have received a gift or two you will not use, please re-gift it at one of our drop-off points.

“With your help, next Christmas will be a much brighter one for hundreds of older people.”

You can donate your unwanted gifts at one of the drop off points and they will be wrapped to be sent to an elderly person next Christmas.
