Christmas hampers bring cheer to Stroud

Posted on

Dursley & District Elderly Community Group open their doors daily Monday - Friday mornings to the elderly people in the area to pop in as and when they wish for a cup of tea and light bite they can stay as long as they want and come along as often as they wish.

There are a group of regulars who pop in every day (some of which were in the photo) who would otherwise not see anyone.This group is the lifeline for some of the community and sometimes the only social activity they are involved with.
The group is run by Gillian and a group of volunteers and is fully dependent on donations and grants. The cheque which was donated by Mears Foundation will go towards hiring a coach to take some of the community out for tea and cake.
