IN order to make life easier for its older clients living in lockdown, Age Concern Crediton has begun a free delivery of a portion of fish and chips to each of those clients who would like to have a hot meal at least once-a-week.

Cooked freshly to order by Chef’s Choice, the individual portions are taken by the charity’s staff and volunteers to clients not only in Crediton town, but also to those living as far afield as Newton St Cyres, Sandford, Lapford, Copplestone, Bow and Hittisleigh. The fresh meals have been very well received by clients.

Age Concern Crediton is very grateful for the co-operation of Crediton Congregational Church for allowing the use of its car park during the food collection and for the financial support that has made this free service possible.

Among others, this came from the ladies of West Down Chapel, Cheriton Bishop, from the recent donation from Lions Clubs International and from Brewin Dolphin Limited of Exeter.  County Councillors Margaret Squires and Nick Way have also been very helpful in supporting the charity.

Although more than 50 clients, their partners and carers have benefited from the deliveries each time, Age Concern Crediton very much regrets that it cannot be extended to others because of the logistical challenge that it involves.
