Oak Lodge manager Helen Smith hands over a donation to a volunteer from Taunton Open Door.

Oak Lodge care home in Chard has been collecting items for the homeless to donate to Taunton Open Door.

Home Manager Helen Smith  said ‘We handed over a whole trolley full of items recently including blankets, hats, scarves, gloves toiletries and food items”. We were absolutely blown away by the amount of items that were donated in such a short space of time. We’d like to thank everyone who made a donation to such a wonderful cause. Oak Lodge will also act as a drop off point for any future donations.’
