Teatime for Salvation Army volunteers in Great Yarmouth
published on 30 Jul 2021
Salvation Army volunteers in Great Yarmouth have been treated to afternoon tea by the church and charity to recognise their efforts during the pandemic.
Captain Marie Burr, the local church leader, and community manager Harry Woods, applied to Virgin Media’s O2 Together Fund and delivered afternoon teas to more than 30 volunteers to mark Thank You Day.
Marie paid tribute to the volunteers for all their hard work.
She said: “Our volunteers have been absolutely amazing, and we wanted to thank them for everything they have done. They helped run our food bank on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, packing around 150 parcels for single people and couples every week.
“They also helped us to support 50 families, serve 140 hot meals on Thursday and Friday, and prepare breakfast on Wednesday morning for 50 people. We were delivering about 20 food parcels a week to local schools, and they also helped us deliver around 330 presents and hampers at Christmas.”
