c42d2c0d931e6bd6ef6bb756e82ba652Thank you Starbucks Borehamwood for your friendly smile and agreeing to be part of our Christmas Angel Boxes for those in the Borehamwood area! What a lovely gesture and so charitable of you. Look forward to this and so appreciative of your support. Starbucks is place many people go for a ‘me’ moment, I know I do, to sit and reflect, or read or simply catch up on work. So happy to have your support!

Sometimes people say to me, oh its good you do that, I would like to, but I don’t have time or I am struggling myself. Life can be struggle and sometimes we have very little to give, but trust me, however little you have, you can usually find something to give even if its just a little time or buying something small to make someone smile.

Angel Hands is the perfect vehicle to help others give, I have listed a few ways below.

We have some essential items that we are providing in the form of vouchers for our Christmas boxes, however we really do need some more people to come forward and offer some items to make these a gift, from the hands of angels!

If you have a business or would like to sponsor some items for either our children or adult boxes please get in touch. Nothing is too small. We would like to ask for household items that would enhance someones home, teddies or games for children. All items much be new!

If you have more time or resources then please be involved in the essential side of things we require supermarket vouchers, and also vouchers for all essential items. The more we come together the more people we can help….

Thanks for the lovely interaction yesterday with a Barnet Quaker distributing white poppies. Thank you for your interest and support for the work of Angel Hands and look forward to meeting with you again.

Red poppies to honour and remember the brave service men and women who lost their lives for our country.

White poppies to show respects but also to emphasise the ongoing work to prevent war and causes of war. Its the time of year people stand together to reflect and appreciate.

Today is Halloween! A bustling night which has become so popular in the UK. Many children and families rushing to spend the evening at parties or trick and treating.

Just a small thought for some of the slightly older population – According to Help the Aged 1 million older people regularly go a month without speaking to anyone.

To look and notice an elderly person alone, shopping or walking in the busy streets and give a smile, is like an Angelic gift.

We all feel better when someone smiles, a real genuine smile. Its obviously not true that every elderly person is alone, but whats the harm in sharing a smile, I reckon the more we all get into the habit of smiling especially at those who may really appreciate it, the happier everyone will be!

A straw can break the camels back, and don’t we all feel that sometimes! Well I bet a smile can turn around someones day.

Angel Hands do more than smile, but in between everything else we try remember and pass on the little free gifts of life too.

Right now we are working hard to collect many beautiful items, exciting vouchers and also raise funds to make sure that one of our Angels provides Angel Boxes for those vulnerable or crisis hit children which we are working with this Christmas. Also planning some special Angel Boxes for the older members of society who, with the a touch of an angel could feel like life is not just about existing or surviving, but about living!

Please contact us if you can help with the above, or if you know of someone we haven’t met yet who is in need of our help!

Dropping off a little Angel Box for a very young lady who has been in and out of hospital lately. Her family have been struggling to work around this and as well as a few treats we are giving some vouchers to stock up on those much needed essentials.
