The Beast from the East and The Pest from the West.
The snow prevented us from getting volunteers and clients into Dover Street as the transport services we use considered it dangerous to travel off main roads and social services advised everyone not to travel. Some members of our dedicated staff did manage to walk into Dover Street. Its not until the snow falls that you realise Dover Street is a hill.
Emergency Food for the Elderly.
With the help of the District Nursing team and Adult Social Care more than 20 elderly families were delivered emergency provisions to keep them nourished during the bad weather. We thank members of the public for donating the food to our collection points, the main point being at the Sainsburys Colton store. Donated items are collected on a regular basis as and when the trolley fills up. If you would like to donate any non perishable items they can be left at the NET trolley just inside the Sainsburys stores entrance or at NET Dover Street during office hours.
Our most remote clients at Garforth Cliff were supported by their neighbours and NET volunteers during the atrocious conditions.
