Funding joy for local groups

Two groups who provide services to isolated older adults have been awarded grants with the help of the local team at Home Instead Wrexham and Flintshire.

Rossett Community Council will be running pop up outdoor tea parties for its elderly residents – which will replace the community café which hasn’t been able to run due to coronavirus. 

The events are part of the Community Agent scheme and supported by local volunteers.

Meanwhile Gresford and Marford Lunch club, another community run group have also been awarded a grant to bring back their indoor social activities once restrictions have been lifted. 

Both groups were successful in their applications to Home Instead Charities, whose aims are to keep ageing adults happy, healthy and connected with their local communities.
