CHASE Christmas 2020 | Age UK Neighbourly Volunteering - Tom's Story

"We have recently moved home and now live in a village in Staffordshire. It transpires that one of our neighbours is quite frail and has a spinal issue which means his mobility is severely limited. His wife also has dementia and therefore they have not only been self-isolating but struggle with mundane tasks.

I have helped them with a few odd jobs recently and I also put their bins out and back every week. My wife also baked them a cake the other week, so we do try and support them in a neighbourly way...every little helps".
