Looking forward to the New Year

We’d like to wish all our wonderful Community Friends and Volunteers a safe and contented Christmas.

We’ve really enjoyed your company in lots of different ways this year. We’ve loved seeing the smiles of our Community Friends when we’ve delivered meals, books, plants, cards and Top-up Shops to your doors.  And we’ve appreciated our phone calls with you, whether it’s just a for a chat, or to try to help and support people in need. Our volunteers say that your welcome and cheerful conversation has raised their spirits. You really are the most resilient group of people!

We’ve loved working with our willing and good-humoured volunteers – thank you for your time and hard work to help us to get our plans working. We couldn’t do any of this without you!

Our volunteers are taking a well-earned break now, and we’re making all sorts of plans for the New Year. We look forward to speaking with you again very soon. And, if you need it, our Helpline number is 07903 452788.

As a very wise friend of mine recently told me “It’s not for ever, things will get better.” And she’s right!
