COMMUNICARE in Swanage is 40 years old and is celebrating with a special Service of Thanksgiving and Praise at the Emmanuel Baptist Church in the town.

Volunteers with the group come from all walks of life and have helped lots of people in need since 1984.

In the first year Covid-19 pandemic, they took 2,000 people to Wareham to have their jabs.

They have taken people to hospital, visited patients, done shopping, collected prescriptions and pensions, and accompanied frail elderly people for a walk or in a wheelchair.

They have also filled in forms, written letters, visited the elderly, handicapped, lonely and bereaved, and sat in to relieve carers.

Some of these activities are now off limits due to rule changes but car transport for hospital visits and other reasons is still permitted.

The service is at the church in Victoria Avenue on Thursday, May 21, at 2.30pm and will be followed by tea and cake.

Everyone is welcome, whether they have helped, been helped or if they are interested in the cause.
