Care and Share Time
Care and Share Time is a fantastic group in Yeovil which provides a safe and sociable place for lonely (mainly due to bereavement), sick or disabled seniors to meet once a week and enjoy one another's company. The group meets on Mondays from 10am until 1pm, 52 weeks of the year. Members have the opportunity to enjoy a simple craft such as knitting or a cross stitch which they can take home to complete during the week, and bring back to compare at the next meeting. Care and Share Time provides a meal which enables disabled people, such as the visually impared members, to enjoy a meal without having the worry of having to prepare it themselves. The grant received through Somerset Community Foundation helped with the hire of the hall where the group meets and withgroup the purchase of food for lunches and materials for the craft sessions.
Below you will find photos from the group meeting as well as some quotes from the members about how important Care and Share Time is to them.
