NeedleSmart have donated food, drinks, toiletries and more to Caring Connections, a Knowsley based charity who have been active in the Merseyside region for over 27 years.

Caring Connections provide targeted care and support at the point of most need by promoting independence and reducing social isolation. The NeedleSmart team, along with staff at CAL International, decided that instead of sending Christmas cards this year, they would bring in donations daily that could be used to make hampers for those in need.

Charlotte and Sean, supervisors from Caring Connections, came to the offices in Knowsley to collect the bursting bags!

CEO of NeedleSmart, Cliff Kirby, said “It is wonderful that the NeedleSmart team show such compassion and generosity by deciding to support local charities like Caring Connections.”

From all of us at NeedleSmart, we hope the hampers can go some way to helping those in need in the local community this Christmas!
