ACTIVE AND IN TOUCH FROME NEWSLETTER - KEEPING YOU UP-TO-DATE WITH WHAT WE DO IN OUR COMMUNITY

During Mental Health Awareness Week, Dougie Brown (Director of Services for Active and In Touch), Gwen Corbet and Di Roberts (Co-ordinators) were at the Coventry Building Society, cementing the friendship with and support from the staff there.

On three separate occasions , when customers entered the Society, having completed their financial business, they would also have the opportunity to talk to Dougie, Gwen or Di to find out more about thework undertaken by Active and In Touch in Frome and the surrounding villages.

People were able to take away leaflets containing information on how to become a volunteer, the training they could undertake and the support available for them in this role.

There was also information relating to regular giving to the charity as an alternative method of supporting the ongoing aim to combat loneliness and isolation, which sadly has become even more important since the advent of the pandemic.

Many thanks from  Keeley, Georgia and Megan from the Coventry BS not only for their support in Mental Health Awareness Week, but also for their Annual Christmas Raffles, where all the proceeds are generously donations to Active and In Touch, thus further helping ongoing support us
