Norwich residents enjoy afternoon tea as a 1000 Hours treat
A free afternoon tea was served to delighted residents at The Cedars sheltered housing complex off Newmarket Road in Norwich on February 29 by adults and children from Gateway Vineyard church as part of its 1000 Hours kindness campaign over Lent.
Volunteers prepared and served the tea of sandwiches, cakes, scones, tea and coffee to around 15 grateful residents.
Organiser Jo Yallop said: “We loved meeting the residents and making a connection with them. The smallest helpers were in charge of taking tea and coffee orders and serving up the cakes. Everyone loved to have a chat and share about their lives… best of all the residents asked the 1000 Hours volunteers to think up with a plan to come back more regularly.”
