They have donated £250 to the Lichfield-based self help group, Open Door of Hope, while Lichfield and District Live at Home Scheme benefited from money raised from selling handmade Christmas wreaths.

Mike Wetson, co-founder of Open Door of Hope – which supports mental health service isers, their carers and their families, said: “This kind donation will firstly help to cover our weekly rent and help towards getting a website up and running.”

Lichfield Live at Home Scheme encourages older people to live independently to avoid social isolation and maintain their independence and offers numerous services, such as befriending home visits and telephone calls, weekly escorted shopping trips, extended exercise sessions, a free handyman service and a popular lunch club.

The scheme’s manager Caroline Bruno said: “We are delighted with this generous donation and look forward to investing it in our current services that are run by the scheme.”
