At Christmas we had a very generous anonymous donation of Christmas Presents for 87 of the pensioners and families we support, this was definitely the highlight of the year, our volunteers loved going to hand these lovely gifts out and just making people smile again, there was lots of tears this day too, but they was tears of happiness.
2 of our Main Volunteers Stephen and Moggy with their good friend Mike Went to the care home and did an open air concert outside the care home, so all the residents could sit in the window and listen, it was truly magical, seeing how happy they were, some even got out of their chairs to dance.
The next day our local primary school was way underwater and we all helped there to try and less the damaged caused by the storm, later that day we acquired a dingy from one of our supported MD Solutions,and Carol and Aide went out Supported by Pam and Ste, they sailed food and supplies on the dingy to those who couldn’t leave their properties.
Car 1 Pam & Carol would go to Bewsey, Car 2Clair and Jayne would go to Westbrook, Car 3 Sarah & Gill would go to Longford and Car 4 Joan and Gill would go to Dallam, each car would be serving packed lunches, hot drinks, pot noodles and also handing out microwaveable meals for the nighttimes.
So as you can see we have had a very busy 11 months.
