Meals on Wheels a way to give back

MORE than three years ago, Junction Hill man Darrell Couch tried his hand at making the community a better place through volunteering.

It was one of the best decisions he'd made.

Mr Couch volunteers his time three to four days a week at Grafton Meals on Wheels where he goes on delivery runs, taking food to people who may be unable to cook or go shopping for themselves.

“This is the first place I've ever volunteered at,” Mr Couch said.

“A few years ago I was looking around for things to do and in my situation this was an ideal place to volunteer.”

Mr Couch said he enjoyed helping the service's clients and having a chat with them when he made deliveries.

He said he also loved the social interaction and life experience he gained while volunteering and encouraged others to get involved.

“I love doing it mainly to help the community out, to help people,” he said.

“It's great place to volunteer, I'd recommend this to anyone.”
