Marlborough & District LINK tea party celebrates new logo

Marlborough & District LINK, the team of volunteers who offer good neighbour help with transport, shopping and other practical assistance, held a special tea party for clients and guests on Saturday (July 20) at Kennet Valley Hall, Lockeridge.


Over seventy-five clients and guests enjoyed a delicious afternoon tea prepared and served by LINK Volunteers. Enthusiastic entertainment was provided by Marlborough Community Choir who performed a diverse medley of songs.

A magnificent cake - above - had been created to launch the new Marlborough LINK logo.  It was cut by the Chair of LINK, Vicky Sullivan: “I am delighted to welcome both clients and guests to this very special Tea Party. My sincere thanks go to all the Volunteers who so willingly give of their time to provide Marlborough’s LINK service”. 

Particular recognition was given to two clients who were celebrating their birthdays.

LINK is a team of volunteers who assist residents in Marlborough and the surrounding villages who have trouble getting out and about or need a little help at home. They drive people to medical appointments, day centres, opticians, dentists, the shops and to visit sick relatives and friends. Volunteers also offer neighbourhood support by picking up prescriptions, shopping and home visits to provide companionship. 

LINK members pride themselves on delivering a professional service to the local community. Volunteer drivers, who are paid a mileage allowance, covered some 39,000 miles last year and it is not unusual for the organisation to help as many as thirty-five people in a day. 

If you would like to join an enthusiastic and dedicated team of volunteers, Marlborough LINK is always in need of more drivers and co-ordinators as well as people to provide neighbourhood support.   

For more details contact Vicky Sullivan on 01672 288007 or via marlboroughlink.org.uk
