Penrith volunteers provide a lifeline
Sir, I wish to thank all those volunteers involved in the Friday weekly Penrith Methodist Church lunch club and the Christ Church tea service for the truly wonderful service and support they provide to the community.
My elderly mother has been attending both events for about 18 months thanks to an invitation and encouragement from a dear volunteer. Living alone and relatively housebound, these events are the highlight of her week; an opportunity to get out of the house, socialise, enjoy delicious home-cooked food, tea, cake and biscuits, sing and chat.
Thank you for caring and for volunteering your time and talents each week. You really are making a difference and are all very much appreciated. Yours etc,
