This year has been tremendously difficult for everyone, however for the elderly and those living alone it is even more challenging. With the dark nights drawing in and cold days of winter nearly here it is even more important that we look out for our neighbours, colleagues and friends.
The Cambridge United Community Trust have been supporting the local community throughout the recent months. If you live locally you may find the following helpful.
