New partnership matches HPC volunteers with local care homes

By Hinkley Point C media team | Posted April 30, 2020

Hinkley Point C has established a new partnership with Somerset Care, which runs 27 care homes across the county. The new venture matches volunteers from the HPC project with their nearest care home; the hope being that these relationships will develop and endure beyond the pandemic.
The first volunteers visited Stockmoor Lodge care home in Bridgwater this week - ensuring strict social distancing between themselves and the care home staff. Helping with the outside areas of the home, they cut the grass and replanted nearly 100 pots on the long patio, and more enhancement are planned for the weeks ahead.
Penny Hammond, manager of the 90 bed home, said “We are so grateful to the volunteers for supporting us at this difficult time. They are doing work that is really useful, the residents love to see people out of their windows and I hope that they will be able to help in other ways when things get easier”
