It is that time of year when Greta Miller puts out the call.

The Gore Meals on Wheels co-ordinator is seeking volunteers who can help deliver meals during the three-week holiday break.

Mrs Miller said she had already had people contact her offering to help.

“Isn’t that good,” Mrs Miller said.

“Without even asking they just come.”

She needed to cover three runs for three weeks.

It took about an hour to complete one run.

“If you are able to help, just contact me.

“That would be marvellous.”

The meals were picked up at 11.15am from the Heartland Hotel Croydon.

It had already been an unusual year for the service because during lockdown she had to put out an emergency call for drivers to replace those who were not available.

“We had people inundating us with offers of help – it was marvellous.”

“We’ve had lots of help this year and so I am thinking we’ll have lots of help again.”

Mrs Miller said she was always grateful to the people who volunteered.

If anyone would like to volunteer to deliver meals please telephone Greta Miller (03) 207-2780.bridge mediaNike Air Force 1 07 Khaki Dark Green Medium Olive /Black-Starfish
