Our Small Repairs Workers have been helping out in the Community. They have been picking up food and drinks from Morrisons and Marks & Spencer and dropping them off for distribution by Community Action for Erskine, The Star Project and Voluntary Action East Renfrewshire.

They have also been picking up and distributing subscriptions for those who can’t get out and have no family members to assist.
