THE Roy Humphreys Centre based in Longford will be supporting local residents to celebrate VE Day, safely and following social distancing rules on Friday.
Trustee and volunteer Jean Humphreys, who is currently in 12 week isolation along with other volunteers, trustees and many of the customers., has organised with her neighbours to have socially distanced picnics in their own front gardens and to decorate them.
Unfortunately they had to cancel their planned event but hope this will be “a lovely way for people to stay connected and celebrate the VE Day 75th Anniversary”.
The centre is also currently running as a support hub with the main focus being to cook and deliver free meals to vulnerable and isolated people aged over 55 years old in Longford.
The centre re-opened three weeks ago and to date they have delivered around 300 meals.
Amanda Gillespie from the centre said: “We are supporting VE Day celebrations by providing free picnic bags to the bungalows and to others around Longford. I have also been updating our Facebook page with events happening online and tv nationally.
“We are currently open two days a week on Thursdays and Fridays and offer takeaway 9 am- 12 pm. People can also ring if they need support or signposting to other services.”
