Residents across the borough are being asked to volunteer to help older people during the winter months
The 'Snow Angels' project is part of a range of support being provided to older people throughout West Cheshire during the year called 'Keeping Well in West Cheshire' following a partnership between Cheshire West and Chester Council and Vale Royal and West Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Groups, through Age UK Cheshire and 'Snow Angels', a Cheshire-based social enterprise company.
'Snow Angels' are now recruiting volunteers to help to clear snow from paths, pick up shopping or prescriptions and deliver them, help with dog walking, be-friending and in general helping older people. Equipment and protective clothing are all provided along with full training — volunteers will also undergo background checks.
