Living with Parkinson’s disease can be difficult for Renate – so she was grateful when our volunteer called round to help.

Carer Phillip got Red Cross support and now he has learnt specialist skills, met new people and is busy helping party goers over the festive season.

Second World War veterans, Ray and Arthur, make a memorial trip to the battlefields with our support.

After a heart attack and stroke, bowls enthusiast Connie thought she would never play the sport she loved again.

After losing both her husband and much of her eyesight, Hilda was at her very lowest ebb – until our volunteer helped her rediscover a zest for life.

Anyone who has heart surgery in their eighties will naturally need a bit of initial support – which is why Theresa turned to us for help.
