Officers deliver Small Acts of Kindness across Hertfordshire
Main article content
In the run up to Christmas, officers across the county have been helping to distribute 500 ‘Warm in Winter’ gift bags to people in the community.
The bags have been provided by the Small Acts of Kindness charity and contain items to help anyone aged over 55 who may be cold or vulnerable in their own home this winter.
They include a fleece blanket, thermal hat, socks, gloves, soup, porridge, a hot drinks pack and a mug, as well as an information pack about services, support and activities for older people.
Officers have been handing out the bags at community engagement events across the county and have also distributed them directly to people’s homes.
Chief Inspector Andy Wiseman is overseeing the project and said: “We have worked in partnership with Small Acts of Kindness for the past four years and the support they provide to older and vulnerable people across Hertfordshire is invaluable.
“These bags are a real lifeline for some people and can have a huge impact.”
