Be a Friend at Christmas

By being a friend, you’re bringing neighbourhoods together and helping to combat loneliness where you live.

Thank you for being a friend in 2016!

2. Find a Christmas Day activity for an older person

Check in on older neighbours, friends or relatives to see what their plans are for Christmas. If they’re spending the day alone, help them search for an activity on the Community Christmas website.
