During the pandemic South Derbyshire Community Voluntary Service (CVS) has gone above and beyond to help residents in South Derbyshire, they really have shown their true colours.
Councillor David Muller has recently stepped down from representing South Derbyshire District Council at CVS and has expressed his thanks and gratitude to the CEO Roger Moors and his staff for the work they have done through the pandemic.
He said: “It has been a real honour to represent South Derbyshire District Council at CVS during the past few years and my sincere thanks go to the CEO Roger Moors and his staff and volunteers for the incredible work they have done, and are still doing, in and around South Derbyshire.
“The voluntary sector is indispensable in these challenging times and as Roger has said South Derbyshire CVS has stepped up to meet the needs of our community with tenacity, resilience and innovation”.
Last year CVS provided 1177 food parcels to the most vulnerable people in society. They have also worked to support those most isolated and living alone, 127 people received almost 2000 hours of befriending support. They have conducted 417 safer home visits to 372 older and vulnerable people to help improve home security.
The list goes on with over 300 people being signposted to volunteering opportunities around Derbyshire. Councillor Muller has thanked each and everyone for their time and support as we hopefully emerge from this pandemic.
