Northwold Care Group
Annual Report 2002
Our three activities have continued efficiently.
Car Scheme: 13 drivers in the scheme have done more than 170 journeys, totalling over 4000 miles. The longest trips have been to Norwich. The scheme depends entirely on the volunteer drivers. Thanks to all of them. Drivers claim 18p per mile, paid by the Parish and Borough Councils. Passengers also pay 18p but drivers' time is free. Drivers at present : John Haylock, Jo Norris, Mr and Mrs Elwes, Ron Deacon, Pam Eyles, Alison Lynch, Tom Shephard, Janet Hawkins, Pat Coles, Jane Luckman, Toni Arthur-Hay and Jim Booty, (Co-ordinator).
Lunch Club: The monthly lunches have been enjoyed by an average of 18 people, and there is room for more. Again the lunches could not happen without the volunteer cooks, servers and washers-up, including the ex- Badgers. The Christmas lunch will be free. Regular helpers are Pam Eyles, Barbara Booty, Jo Norris, Joan Gains, Mitch Hodges, Kay Gostling, Janet Deacon, Betty Akers and two Badgers.
Equipment: At least 76 items have been borrowed during the year. One new wheelchair was bought. We are grateful to the Village Hall for the storage space, and the Atmere Charity for the wheelchair. Members have done well over 500 hours of work this year, not including help to friends.
