Our Second Scouse Winter Wellbeing

Posted by Rachael Treacher on Thursday 10th October 2019

Last week we launched our second Winter Wellbeing project that will help over 65’s to stay warm, active and connected over the winter months ahead. The project will see us delivering warm items, things like blankets, hats, coats, scarves and even hot water bottles, providing a little extra warmth for older people as we move into these colder months.
