Our team of staff and volunteer delivery drivers were out again yesterday (30th June) to give a friendly hello and bags of food essentials to older people in need across Somerset and North Somerset.
We have now completed 150 food deliveries across our area. That’s enough food for 300 meals plus some well received treats too!
We are really grateful to Somerset Coronavirus Response & Recovery Fund and St Monica Trust for financially helping us with this project.
One older lady in need described the Age UK Somerset staff delivering these food parcels as:
“angels in cars!”
Cars have certainly been needed with deliveries as far afield as Portishead, Merriott, Yeovil and Burnham!
We plan to deliver more food in July.
Please email email@example.com if you know anyone in need.
