Tranmere Rovers in the Community (TRIC) aims to bring together individuals of all ages and backgrounds, with a key focus placed on social inclusion, health, education and sport participation.
TRIC continued to support regular programme members during the height of the COVID-19 outbreak, delivering Dementia Friendly Sessions online during lockdown as national government restrictions prevented usual face-to-face meetings taking place at the Recreational Centre.
Angela, who attends the Dementia group with her father Eric, described the impact of Tranmere’s dedication to reach out to those in need at a particularly difficult time.
She said: "The team from Tranmere have been amazing during this very difficult time for everyone, especially those living with dementia.
“They have been in contact on a regular basis by phone, email and even calling at our homes making sure we have what we need and offer their support. They are an amazing team and selflessly offer support for everyone who attends the Dementia group every Thursday.”
In addition to this, TRIC volunteers distributed over 700 emergency food parcels to those unable to leave their homes in Birkenhead and the wider Wirral area during the current pandemic.
One of those who gave up their valuable time to reach out to those in the local community was Jess, who explained why she became involved in the Club’s scheme.
She said: “Over the last few weeks now we’ve been packing the food parcels in the local area, we’ve had deliveries and donations from the public and small shops in the area who want to donate.
“We as a team will pack the parcels here and we are then able to deliver the parcels in the local area.
“We see how appreciative and how grateful the people are who receive these parcels, some of them haven’t been able to get out over the past few weeks and some of them are just going through a difficult time.”
