Star No.3 – Mum and daughter join forces to support the isolated

Mum and daughter join forces to support the isolated

Myself and my mum decided to volunteer to help our community. I am a primary school teacher so after schools closed I wanted to help the vulnerable to carry on with life as normally as possible. My mum is a carer who looks after an elderly relative and volunteers in a local Mary Stevens hospice shop.

We have had a number of local residents in Kingswinford and Amblecote we have been shopping for, collecting prescriptions and offering a friendly chat on the phone when they need it.

We feel we have made a difference by allowing vulnerable people to have a connection to the outside world in this awful time. Without the volunteers, they wouldn’t have access to essentials at this difficult time. It has been a very rewarding experience and it’s brilliant to help to community where possible.
