Services during the Covid-19 Restrictions
Volunteer Action is a local charity supporting the elderly, unwell, disadvantaged and those with disabilities. We operate in Oundle, Thrapston and the surrounding villages from Easton-on-the-Hill to Titchmarsh.
At this difficult time, you may be looking for help from a name you already trust. Opportunities to meet people for a chat and to go out for essential food and medications are limited for some time to come. VA could help.
