It’s goodbye to 2020…

Since March of this year everyone has been missing the usual activities with Ditch the Slippers but, happily, with the support of volunteers, we’ve all been able to keep in touch. It’s really good to know that some members who live alone and felt rather isolated before joining Ditch the Slippers were also able to support their new friendships with regular phone calls and messages.

Members also valued the fact that we have been there for them to help with some practical tasks, such as picking up prescriptions, shopping and more, and, with the timely support of a grant from Wealden District Council, volunteers were able to create and deliver a Christmas gift of seasonal goodies and plants to everyone.

So, it’s time to say goodbye to a difficult 2020 and we really look forward to a more sociable 2021.
