Do the right thing. Volunteer! Tom and Chloe’s story #youngpeopledoing #covidsuperstars @WeAreBCR

Tom’s mom works for the voluntary sector so when the pandemic hit and he could see the impact it was having on vulnerable people he offered to help because it was the right thing to do.

Tom an electrical engineer and Chloe a nursery assistant have both been furloughed so have plenty of time on their hands and wanted to help. Tom was clear from the start that he was not a ‘shopper’ and this would be his worst nightmare but he was happy to collect and deliver prescriptions which he did most days. They followed all of the social distancing guidelines and used hand sanitiser after each delivery. People were so incredibly grateful for their help, they got lots of smiles and waves which made it all worthwhile.

Tom was Dudley CVS Young Volunteer of the Year back in 2015, it’s good to see he hasn’t lost the volunteering bug!
