Meals on Wheels

For the past two weeks people delivering Meals on Wheels in Ashburton have had some additional assistance, in the form of members of the Young Vinnies organisation from two different schools.

Two weeks ago children from the Young Vinnies, which is the youth arm of the St Vincent de Paul Society, from St Joseph’s School helped with the delivery of meals, and last week it was the turn of members of the 14-strong group from Hampstead School.
