SEASON OF GIVING: Junior school students at St Peter's Anglican College in Broulee gift handmade Christmas cards to Eurobodalla Meals on Wheels' Alan Russell, to pass on to clients.

Students from St Peter’s Anglican College in Broulee have helped spread some Christmas cheer at Eurobodalla Meals on Wheels recently.

Service manager Alan Russell said that while the festive season was a happy time for many, for others, it could be a lonely time.

Students from junior school were recruited to create Christmas cards and spread the joy of the season with Meals on Wheels clients.

“Last year was the first year we had cards made for our clients. The students from St Mary’s in Moruya produced cards,” Mr Russell said.

“Many cards took pride of place in client’s homes.

“This year, the junior school students at St Peter’s Anglican College took up the challenge.

Mr Russell said the cards would be sent to all clients of Eurobodalla Meals on Wheels, from Durras to Wallaga Lake.

“We cover a large area and have a large client base, many of whom will be alone over Christmas,” he said. 

“This is a little way of bringing some joy and happiness.

Along with the card, each client will receive a small gift from Meals on Wheels.

The service also provides a special Christmas menu for clients, with a special Christmas party held for social support clients.

“These small ways of bringing joy to older people are a great thing to do. Our volunteers go out of their way to make sure the Christmas deliveries and events are fun and our clients made to feel special,” Mr Russell said.

“Our thanks to the students and staff at St Peter’s for their efforts to bring the Christmas message and some love to the lives of our older citizens.”
