Charity delivers afternoon treats to vulnerable people
A lockdown treat has been delivered to dozens of people around mid Norfolk.
Ana Alves, who runs wholesale baker Ana The Difference in Dereham, has been making up the afternoon tea boxes for cancer charity Caring Friends.
Margaret Barrett, Caring Friends administrator, said she and Moira Cranmer had delivered about 80 of the boxes as a way of cheering up the people the charity supports, many of whom fall into the ‘vulnerable’ category and are shielding at their homes.
Mrs Barrett said: “We’ve been delivering to our friends and having a short chat at their garden gates.
“It’s been a welcome relief in an otherwise very bland world for both us and our friends.”
