A new Christmas card campaign aims to spread festive cheers to vulnerable people in East Suffolk.

Helping to tackle loneliness and social isolation, East Suffolk Council has launched a new campaign, which will see Christmas cards being sent to some of the most vulnerable residents in the district.

As well as a festive message, the Christmas cards will include printed information with contact details of organisations and services available to those who may need help or advice over the winter months.

To help distribute the Christmas cards, local organisations and groups are being asked to contact East Suffolk Council before December 22 if they believe some residents in their communities could benefit from receiving one.

However, please note that there is limited stock available, which will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis.
