We helped members of Chalgrove Age Concern celebrate getting back together after 18 months apart due to the pandemic.

Thanks to an Asda Foundation Bringing Communities Back Together grant of £481 they put on a celebration party complete with a roast dinner. Our Wheatley store's community champion Linda said: "It was a huge day for the members. They literally had no idea their closure would be so long, initially thinking it may close for three months. They were delighted to be back though and there were smiles from ear to ear which makes my job so worthwhile. I went around the group speaking to members helping to make them feel welcome, and relaxed. One of the members also wanted to draw me a thank you picture as he absolutely loves colouring."
