On Wednesday 11 March, representatives from town and county organisations came together to celebrate the launch of Thame Good Neighbour Scheme.
The scheme was an idea born from the Thame Alliance Group and has come to fruition through the support of the Town Council and Sharing Life Trust. It aims to help vulnerable and isolated people within the community, regardless of age, via its team of volunteers who have kindly offered their time to assist others in need.
Town Mayor, Jeannette Matelot Green, welcomed everyone who was in attendance, which included Thames Valley Police, Citizens Advice Bureau, representatives from the local churches, Lord Williams’s School and OCVA amongst others. With the connections that these various organisations have within the community, it is hoped that awareness of the scheme will spread to those who need it most.
If you know someone who could benefit from a bit of help now and again or if you would like to become a volunteer, visit our website at www.thamegns.org or call 07913 713452.
