Hundreds of people across our county have demonstrated that community spirit is very much alive and kicking and the desire to help other less fortunate themselves is instilled in the many, not the few.
At Age UK County Durham, we have had people from all walks of life offer their time to support our older residents who are self-isolating and shielding.
Over 150 volunteers from our communities have put themselves before others and completed shopping trips, collected prescriptions, dropped off food parcels, books, jigsaws and made regular weekly welfare calls to those feeling lonely and isolated.
Age UK County Durham cannot thank these wonderful people enough. They have made such an enormous difference to people across County Durham for which we are extremely grateful.
