We’re over the moon that Noreen, who volunteers in our HomeFood Café, has received a Points of Light award from the Prime Minister.
The Points of Light awards recognise outstanding acts of volunteering and community service. Noreen has given up over 5,000 hours of her time at the Café, and has volunteered there since it first opened.
Our Chief Executive, Wendy, speaks for all of us when she says: “Everyone is welcome at our HomeFood Café. We meet many socially isolated and lonely people who are looking for a friendly place to have a home-cooked meal. Noreen plays a key part; she has a wonderful sense of humour and our customers love seeing her every week. Her positivity is endless, and we cannot wait to welcome her back once our Café can reopen.”
Congratulations Noreen, from all of us at Wimbledon Guild!
Socially isolated people across Merton are depending on us for immediate and practical support with food deliveries, telephone befriending and much more. In what is a difficult time for everyone, help us support vulnerable people who are likely to feel the impact most.
