Hampers packed with treats have been presented to some of the people and services that have kept Dawlish going through the pandemic.
The Helping Dawlish group put together the hampers for several organisations including the town’s pharmacies, police, doctors’ surgery, hospital and ambulance service.
The hampers, gift-wrapped by Presents of Dawlish, were to thank those whose services have been particularly in demand during the Covid crisis, and who have worked hard to help keep people safe and well.
Helping Dawlish also included a thank-you poem in each hamper, which read:
‘For those who kept on working
For the community in our town
Helping people when they’re scared or sick
Or Covid’s dragged them down,
The pride we have for all of you
Serving despite the fear
Scooping up our vulnerable
Care and protection aways near.
This hamper couldn’t say it all
Deep gratitude and praise
For all your team have done each day
Guiding Dawlish Parish through this Covid maze.’
