Christmas is coming, the fat cats are getting fatter and everything has changed but nothing has changed.

It’s the season of good will to all men and women yet there will be great disparity between the haves and the have nots.

People in their cosy homes with family all around and those that are homeless or have no family to spend with on Christmas day.

The carers who empower people living with Dementia and other chronic diseases to live their lives at home.

The carers who have no support, who do their best not just at Christmas but all year round without a break or the support of family and friends at times to the detriment of their own health.

Where is the community spirit, respect for the older and more disadvantaged.

It’s all lost in a divisive society about me, me, me.

Pick up the phone, knock on a door, do something for someone else.

Spare a thought for those less well off this Christmas.
