We often see older people sit in the coffee shop or walking along the street on their own, and we have to admit, it makes us a little sad.

But something that really tugged on our heartstrings was this video by ALONE, an agency working with those who have difficulties with loneliness, poverty, ill health or homelessness.

One man describes a Christmas memory of seeing Santa when he was a young boy, and another woman tells her favourite parts of Christmas day. 

It's truly a lovely video and one that needs to be watched.
