More smiles for you

A huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who contributed towards Meals on Wheels recently.

Delivering nutritious cooked meals to elderly people in their own homes is a service that has been operating for nearly 50 years! And it just wouldn’t be possible without our loyal band of volunteer ‘hoppers’ and friends like you who subsidise the cost.

“I am 73 years old and nearly blind,” says one of our residents. “I can’t go shopping on my own and I burn myself if I try to use the stove. Meals on Wheels keeps me happy and healthy.”

Another is 92 years old and gets around with the help of a walker after having a hip replacement. “My old legs are so weak, I can’t stand for long,” she says. “I do appreciate a nice hot meal from Monday to Friday – thank you and God bless.”
