Care for elderly - huge thanks to volunteers

Share this article

WRVS volunteers battled through snow and ice last week to deliver services to older people and check that they were safe, warm and well. Fear of slipping on icy paths and treacherous road conditions mean that older people often cannot get out and about and without our volunteers they may not see anyone else for days at a time.

I’d like to say a massive thank you to our volunteers across the region who have continued to deliver vital services like Meals on Wheels to the housebound, despite the bad weather.

Many volunteers have gone beyond the call of duty and have carried on when other services have stopped.

Thank you and keep up the good work!
