More Covid volunteers are highlighted by Cat

To mark the current National Volunteer Week, Cat Meade, co-ordinator of Llangollen Coronavirus Help Group, has turned the spotlight on more groups helping the town through the the pandemic crisis.

She says of them on Facebook:

Zero Food Waste and Food Share Llangollen 
These guys Volunteer ALL YEAR round, these past 10 weeks they have supported more and more local families, nothing is too much and they ALWAYS do it with a SMILE 

Jane Louise Tornado Kalamity Wild Stephanie Mitchell Lesley Greasley
Jane started the food parcels when we first went into Lockdown, I was messaging orders day after day and with the team they got delivered that very day.

Kirsty had the idea of the VE DAY packages, which together with our Volunteers, Steve chef The Swan Inn, Pontfadog and the lovely Pretty Vintage Tearoom and Barista Coffee we all pulled together to make it a memory for those in Lockdown.

Steph never stops delivering, always happy to help, her daughter is following in her footsteps and has started a small business making jewellery with 70% of everything sold going to the Foodshare Fund, please support.
Lesley is not only doing food deliveries and helping, she has also been preparing and cooking hot food for the vulnerable. 

The Foodshare require their own FULL TIME premises in TOWN as they are currently using the Pengwern hub, but this is only during lockdown, Pref somewhere with a kitchen facility that can become their full time base. If you can help please contact one of the ladies. 

Food Share itself said: "Here is just *some* of the shopping we've done today to make food parcels to support people in our #llangollenfamily

Today alone, 3 unpaid volunteers have done 10 hours' work behind the scenes, and that's before we do our surplus round at 8pm.
Cat goes on: 

A big THANK YOU to Lisa Griffiths 

Lisa has been a Volunteer for 10 weeks, been with the team from day 1. I assign her tasks 4/5 days a week sometimes more than once a day, Lisa has been a PRIME volunteer assisting the elderly with shopping, picking up a list for Aldi, HB along with collecting the orders I submit for residents to Stans, collecting and delivering.

Lisa also helped in the delivery of VE Day packages and the 3,000 leaflet drop we delivered 2 weeks ago.

Any time I message (sometimes at short notice) she says YES and does it with a smile.

I have had a lot of residents comment on how friendly, lovely and helpful Lisa has been with them.
Lisa does all of this while being a mum at home, she doesnt want the limelight and is a genuine lovely lady.

Please join me in saying a BIG THANK YOU to Lisa, you have the heart of an Angel. Amazing lady.

Also on Facebook Cat has made a plea for funds to help her group keep up the good work.

She says: "Every Little Helps Llangollen. Funds are very low, please help us to keep supporting.
