Making telephone contact - 'HELLO, HOW ARE YOU TODAY'
Examples: A call from the daughter, who lives in England, of a man in hospital in Coleraine to assist with some personal clothing. We purchased the clothing and delivered it to Coleraine hospital. A resident, self isolating, contacted us to ask about getting his oven door fixed, it had fallen off. We arranged a repairman to call and fix the oven door.
Currently working up a Summer Bedding Plant project , money has been sourced to purchase summer bedding plants for people who are self isolating to cheer them up
