Hampers spread Christmas cheer!
WE managed to spread some Christmas cheer to 215 deserving people this year, with your help.
The Coventry Telegraph, Heart of England CoOperative Society and Wa r w i c k s h i re - b a s e d delivery giants TNT UK joined forces so readers could make Christmas a little more special.
Now in its 12th year, Pamper with a Hamper saw festive hampers delivered by TNT UK to people over the age of 65 – nominated by you, our readers.
We were inundated with nominations from readers explaining why their friends or neighbours deserved to be pampered with a hamper and selected the lucky 215.
Telegraph editor Keith Perry said: “I rang 12 of the deserving winners myself and it was great to be able to give them some good news.
“Each of the people I spoke to was really modest and all of them were delighted to have been nominated, let alone chosen to receive a hamper.
“We had a lot of nominations and it was far harder to decide who wasn’t going to get a hamper than it was to pick the lucky ones.
“It once again proves what a great community spirit there is in Coventry and Warwickshire and how many selfless people there are out there who think of helping others before themselves.
“We are currently looking for nominations for our Pride of Coventry and Warwickshire Awards. It is our showpiece event of the year which celebrates the unsung heroes of the region, so I would urge people to please nominate someone who deserves to be rewarded for their commitment to inspiring or helping others.”
