After seeing a post on Facebook and The York Press we decided to help Xmas Presence by printing their Christmas Cards/Invites free of charge.

Ian Donaghy announced his initial plans for Xmas Presence in The Press earlier this year, and says residents and companies have since responded brilliantly.

THE organiser of a huge Christmas charity event in York says he has been overwhelmed by the city’s generous response – but says more help is still possible.

The event, at Belfrey Hall in Stonegate, will provide a Christmas Day meal and celebration for more than 40 older York residents who live alone.

He said: “A team of friends, family and volunteers met at the venue on Monday evening to hatch a plan and social media has been buzzing with activity since with offers of making, baking and decorating.

“We are trying to capture the special feeling Christmas had as a child. We will be providing Christmas dinner and a light tea as well, and special hampers filled with homemade gifts, York’s finest produce and wonderful items will be given out to the guests.”

Mr Donaghy has worked closely with Age UK. He said: “We realise that there are other groups who could benefit but we can’t be all things to all men.”

He said the John Lewis “man on the moon” advert had captured the public’s imagination, but he said: “We’re not sending the bloke a telescope – we’re inviting him down for a party!”
