Tamworth: Supporting organisations

Cancer patient support organisation Can Assist meeting monthly in Tamworth again after COVID-19 shutdown

It’s been a “devastating” year for charities, but Tamworth Can Assist had something to celebrate at its latest meeting.

The group gathered for the first time since March in October, and volunteer Robyn Fitzgerald said each friendly face truly made the most of it.

“It was so wonderful to catch up with everyone, most of us hadn’t seen each other since early March,” she said.

“Everyone is so friendly and it’s just a lovely group.”

The first meeting back at the table required some serious catching up between the dozen or so volunteers who attended, but work was also at the front of their minds.

“We discussed really important things like fundraising, and what we can do to be able to fundraise in COVID times,” Ms Fitzgerald said.
