Well as I write this from Canada, the summer has almost past. It is still warm here in Toronto, unseasonably so. Ontario has a number of volunteer drivers that take people around to hospital appointments and GP visits; I was taken round on one of these trips by a friend and I was amazed. Marjory is a volunteer driver and is eighty years old! Yet she has regulars who she takes to hospitals and one mentally disabled youngster she takes to his day care.
All this is of course organised by the Ontario Board; for our part we have just re-ordered our fridge magnets with our 634 315 289 lifeline number and firstname.lastname@example.org email address. If you would like one then please support us at one of our Age Concern Quiz nights at the Venta Florentina. Our next one is the 31st October and then 5th December.
We are always looking for new committee members and volunteer drivers, so if you would like to make life better for someone else, please phone our lifeline 634 315 289. You can make the difference by helping others.
Our 634 315 289 lifeline number has been busy for this time of year; normally quiet we have had rather more than the usual requests for wheelchairs and the like. We are still in need of local (Chiclana) permanent secure storage at a reasonable price.
