Welcome

As a registered charity EDCCA works hard to support people in need and improve their quality of life in Easingwold and District.

We know that there are many people who because of their age or for health reasons rely on the services that we provide such as using the community car scheme to attend a medical appointment or being visited by a friendly volunteer through our Befriending scheme.

We have much to be proud of and I would like to thank you for your continued support.

Pictured here are Cllr. Bridget Fortune, Helen Lambert, EDCCA Volunteer Coordinator, Geoff Lambert, EDCCA Volunteer and John Noone, Chair of Hambleton District Council.

On 24 March 2017 a glittering event was held at The Forum in Northallerton for the Hambleton District Council’s Community Award Ceremony to recognise those who work in our communities across the Hambleton district.

Easingwold District Community Care Association’s Meals on Wheels Scheme was nominated and won the category “Services for Older People”. Helen and Geoff Lambert accepted the award on behalf of Helen Beck, Meals on Wheels Coordinator for EDCCA, and her team of volunteers who deliver the meals.

Clarks Bakers on Long Street, Easingwold prepare the hot, nutritious meals which are then delivered by volunteers to members of the community twice a week. The service provides a hot, two course lunch on Tuesdays and Thursdays every week which not only helps maintain good nutrition but also provides some welcome social contact.

Helen Lambert, on behalf of EDCCA said “It is heart-warming to know that there are so many generous people who give their time freely to improve the well-being of others”.
