DURING this uncertain time, QPR in the Community Trust have been keen to reach out to members of its popular Extra Timer club.
The club, which was first launched in 2009, offers physical and mental activity sessions to local residents over the age of 60 but during this hard time the group has been postponed as many members have been classed as ‘high risk’, leaving a few of them housebound.
As a result, the Trust have ensured that staff members continue to be in regular contact with them, by organising weekly phone calls, which has allowed the Trust to provide any support they may need and allow the members to hear a comforting voice in a time of need.
CEO of QPR in the Community Trust Andy Evans was quick to praise the group, by telling www.qpr.co.uk: “Everyone has pulled together and that makes me immensely proud of our staff. We are still in regular contact with all group members and that is reassuring for us and more importantly for them.
“We started this project as a way of allowing our members to socialise and, despite the tough period we are facing, that won’t stop.”
