Evergreen Care Trust Demonstrate Soup Run Service
Volunteers from the Evergreen Care Trust dropped in at the Stamford Endowed Schools to demonstrate their soup delivery service to Principal Stephen Roberts. Students at the Schools raised the money for the cooker used to make the soup, so this was a chance for the Principal to see just how well it is being put to use.
The Evergreen Care Trust provides services for elderly and vulnerable people in Stamford, of which soup delivery is just one. Volunteers deliver homemade hot soup, bread roll and butter and two portions of home baking to the client’s table. This service aims to reach those older and vulnerable adults in the community who are unable to get out and provides a friendly face to help brighten the day of the clients.
Students across the Schools have been keen to support the work of the Trust through volunteering and fundraising. This has included participating in the Santa Run, volunteering at the annual ball, holding tea parties for elderly people at Christmas, singing carols at care homes, and holding a charity rock concert.
Volunteers Duncan and Sandi Lawson brought Mr Roberts a flask of hot soup, a bread roll, a quiche and a scone with butter.
Mr Stephen Roberts said “It was wonderful to see what an invaluable service the Evergreen Care Trust is providing to elderly and vulnerable people in our community. The lunch was delicious and it was even more satisfying to know that our students have been integral to this effort and are continuing to maintain a close relationship with the Trust. It was humbling to see the good work of Duncan, Sandi and the many other volunteers at Evergreen who make the lives of elderly people in Stamford a little easier and lot brighter.”
