Meals on Wheels for the West Tamar:
need for the service was identified after the Community Centre did a
health assessment, not just for the elderly but also for temporary sick
or those just out of hospital. Mr Finch was part of the steering
committee who set up the network for Red Cross Meals on Wheels for the
West Tamar area.
Ongoing support is needed:
The Red Cross urgently needs volunteers to deliver Meals on Wheels in
the Beaconsfield area to ensure the service can continue.
Commitment would be according to the number of volunteers - but would probably be one day a fortnight.
The delivery of meals is a wonderful outside contact for many who live on their own.
Reimbursement for petrol is provided by the Red Cross.
The program is run from the Caring Network in Exeter .
Anyone needing delivery of meals should also contact Red Cross.
