Co-op Axminster shoppers have shown their support for older people living alone in Axminster who may welcome a volunteer to visit them for a chat and a cuppa. Through their support Coop have awarded £1915.88 to the scheme, which is run by Action East Devon.

On receiving the cheque, Wendy Wayne of Action East Devon said 'We are delighted that Axminster Co-op shoppers have supported this scheme, which means that we can continue to support older people in Axminster who may be feeling lonely or isolated'.
