We Wish YOU a Merry Christmas


Christmas cheer has been brought to the doorsteps of hundreds of our readers thanks to a super-Santa effort from ourselves, Heart of England Co-op and TNT.

You nominated deserving candidates to us for scrumptuous food hampers supplied by the generous Co-op and TNT has been out delivering them.

Along with our sister weekly papers, more than 250 hampers are being given out across Coventry and Warwickshire.

Lucy, 91: It's made me so happy

LUCY Harper, 91, of Foleshill Road was very surprised to receive her hamper. "I'd like to thank the Co-op very much, I'm so happy. I'm going to share this lovely feast with my daughter"

Now I'm really looking forward to Christmas

MARY Leahy, 72, of Fir Tree Avenue, Lime Tree Park, has been through a difficult year. Her husband, Mike, 73, who suffers from Alzheimer's, was taken to Evedale Care Home, Occupation Road, Binley, and her sister Rita died after a heart surgery - both in the same month of May. The biscuits and chocolates lifted her spirits. She said: "This is wonderful. My husband will be with me at home for a few hours and my children are coming on Christmas Day. "I'm really looking forward to Christmas this year."

I was nearly in tears when I found out

PATRICIA Moore, 65, of Sewell Highway, Wyken, was over the moon about her early Christmas present. "I was nearly in tears when I got the phone call to tell me I'd won the hamper. "I'm going to share all of my goodies with my twin sister."

Maureen's family treat

MAUREEN Keen, 72, of Parry Road, was so excited about her hamper when she received it from Jo Dyke, from the Heart of England Co-Op. "I've got my son coming over from France for Christmas this year, so I'm sure he'll be tucking in."

Bridie, 80: I've never won anything before

BRIDIE Griffin, 80, of Tile Hill, Coventry, was overjoyed.

She said: "I've never won anything before - it's a lovely gesture." Bridie is still heartbroken after her eldest daughter, Angela Newman, 57, died of lung disease three years ago. She would have celebrated her birthday today. "I remember her everyday especially at Christmas time. I always have a family get-together with the rest of the children - the hamper food will be gone by Christmas Day."

Walter so thrilled with his present

RETIRED lorry driver Walter Harrad, 70, of Tile Hill North, gasped when he saw what was inside the hamper. He said: "It's brilliant - it's good quality stuff as well. My youngest son will be with me on Christmas Day. My wife died two years ago - it's been very hard."
