Winter Packs From WIN Warm Up Stockport

Posted on the 27th November 2020

Our Wellbeing and Independence Network (WIN) is delivering 150 winter warmer packs across Stockport.  These packs have a range of useful products and advice on how to keep safe and well during the Winter season. They include:

  • Something warm (Blankets, scarves, gloves, hats)
  • Energy saving advice
  • Thermometer
  • Stockport’s Age Friendly Bulletin with local support information
  • Recipe booklet
  • Keeping well at home advice
  • Creative Craft Kit

As the temperature drops it really is vital that we all stay warm for our health and wellbeing.

Who Receives Them

The Wellbeing & Independence Network, which include AGE UK & the Stockport Car Scheme are distributing the winter warm packs. They will be going to isolated clients across Pure Innovations’ Wellbeing network.

The picture above shows our delivery to Gatley Foodbank. Fran at the Foodbank will ensure the packs go to the people who will benefit most from them. Some may be given to a local care home too. We also provided the Foodbank with One Stockport information packs and our weekly delivery of delicious bread, freshly baked at The Kitchen.

Handy Ladies, a charity that cooks 500 free meals a week for vulnerable people in the Stockport community, also received winter warmer packs for its clients.

The winter warmer packs have been gratefully received by our clients when we have dropped them off on their doorsteps. They are proving very popular!

Thank you to the clients, volunteers and knitting group who have lovingly made some of the blankets and scarves. Also, thank you to Sky who has donated towards the purchase of socks, hats and gloves.
