Our volunteers help make Britain Great

Sir,

WRVS would like to say a big Thank You to all the volunteers who have given up their time to help us support older people – especially those who battled through the snow to deliver hot meals, to ensure shops and cafes at busy hospitals were still able to open and to help out at emergency rest centres set up for stranded motorists.

Our 45,000 volunteers make it possible for us to provide vital services such as meals at home, transport schemes, Good Neighbours projects and community centres – helping to make Britain a great place to grow old all year round.

Ray Koralewski,

WRVS Yorkshire and Humber
