Yvonne Cattermole (Mears Care Coordinator – Stowmarket) would like to say a massive thank you to Mears foundation for their generous donation of £500 to the Meet and Mingle group.
The Meet and Mingle group was set up to help with social isolation in the local community, over the last few years day centres have been closing so this group has been a big asset to the community.
Because of this generous donation on the 15th December 2017 the branch were able to hold a Christmas party for the people that have attended the Meet and Mingle throughout the year.
25 people attended, which was amazing. The Stowmarket Strummers who are all volunteers came along to get us all in the Christmas spirit by playing Christmas song, there was plenty of food for everyone and they had an amazing Christmas raffle which included hampers, chocolate and lots more.
Next year is going to be an amazing year for the group, they are planning trips out, lots of activities for everyone to get involved in and entertainers for everyone to enjoy.
The donation will help to support more people who are suffering from social isolation
