Issue 8 – February 2021 of the Douglas Drive Newsletter is out now!
(We know it’s only January but we were so excited we couldn’t wait any longer!)
We have been made aware of a Covid-19 vaccination scam.

We would just like to remind you to never give your personal information, including bank details, to any cold callers over the phone or on the doorstep. Please stay safe.
Thank you so much to our IT support company for collecting these wonderful Christmas presents, donated by Small Acts of Kindness , on behalf of Douglas Drive.

We would like to say a huge thank you to Small Acts of Kindness for these amazing Warm in Winter Gift bags collected from their distribution centre this week.
The bags are packed with goodies to help keep warm during the winter months, and we are so looking forward to being able to continue our doorstep visits, and distribute these lovely bags to our clients.
More information about this amazing organisation can be found on their website http://www.smallactsofkindness.co.uk and on their Facebook page @Small Acts of Kindness.co.uk
If you shop Amazon Prime Day deals on 13 & 14 October, you can make a difference: Simply shop at smile.amazon.co.uk/ch/1076161-0 or with AmazonSmile ON in the Amazon Shopping app, and AmazonSmile donates to Douglas Drive Senior Citizens Association 🙂
We started our doorstep visits today, armed with goodie bags. So lovely to see our clients after so long.
We will be continuing with these over the next couple of weeks.
Watch out, we could be coming to a street near you!
We are really sorry to have to say that our plans to re-open Douglas Drive with small bubble groups on Monday 5th October has had to be postponed, due to the Covid-19 situation now escalating.
We are very disappointed as we were so looking forward to seeing everyone but, the safety of our clients is our top priority.
This decision will be under constant review and we will keep you informed.
Please remember, you can call us any time. If we are not in the office please leave a message and we will contact you as soon as possible.
