Cat casts the spotlight on Llangollen's volunteer heroes

* Chloe Jane Chard has been volunteering at the newsagents in Castle Street.
To celebrate the current National Volunteers' Week, Cat Meade, co-ordinator of the Llangollen Coronvirus Help Group, has taken to Facebook to shine the spotlight on two sets of volunteers whose actions have stood out during the Covid-19 crisis.

They are Chloe Jane Chard, who has been helping out at the newsagents in Castle Street, and the team at Dee Valley Produce in Oak Street.

Cat says of them:

Chloe has been assisting Newsagents Castle Street as a Volunteer for the past 10 weeks, working 6 days a week delivering to those hard to reach areas of Llangollen and surrounding areas, using her moped she has turned up every day to ensure those newspapers got to their rightful owner who were awaiting their delivery.

Last week Chloe's moped broke down, rather than say she couldn't help she went on her way, on foot to deliver. 

I asked Chloe to tell me a bit about herself so I could share ...

"Hi, my name's Chloe and I’m 17 years old. My lifelong aspiration is to join the military as a nurse and out of lockdown I attended the military awareness course provided my North Wales training in Kinmel Camp, Bodelwyddan. I am a registered nursing cadet with the Royal College of Nursing and awaiting a clinical placement in Wrexham Maelor but due to current circumstances that has been postponed."

Cat says: PLEASE join me in saying a BIG THANK YOU to Chloe, our next Generation, proud of you Chloe and well done. I have a little gift coming your way."

* Part of the team who have kept Dee Valley Produce open during the Covid crisis. 

Please see below A THANK YOU from Sam & Wayne for all the Volunteers who have assisted with deliveries these past 10 WEEKS.

The Staff at the shop have worked long hard hours to keep the fresh produce coming to your door, the Volunteers have ensured every request has been fulfilled.

Thank you all, and please ensure we remain LOYAL to this fantastic LOCAL BUSINESS on the other side. 

The shop's team themselves say: "The past few months have been a very scary and uncertain time for all of us, we would like to send out a huge thank you to our wonderful staff and volunteers who have helped us through this tough time! 

"We couldn’t of done it without them, we are forever grateful especially to our staff members who have worked really hard ....

"Rhian Davies, David Dillon, Jordan Hamner, Heather Pritchard-Jones, Sophie Preston, Julie Davies, Ann and Dave Bithell, Robin Williams, Karen Maurice, Phillipa, Tony & Harry Capstick, Vicky Davies, Howard Jones, Amy (Three Eagles). You are all amazing.

"Wayne, Sam & family." 
Cat has promised to feature more volunteers during the course of the week.
