A north woman who helps out at tea parties in Inverness has ensured members do not feel forgotten during lockdown – by delivering handmade treats to them.
Liz Sutherland spent her days off from her job at Tesco baking goodies, including cakes and sandwiches before delivering the 80 boxes around Inverness.
Mrs Sutherland said: “We usually do senior tea dances anyway but we aren’t likely to get another one this year.
“I thought rather than have anybody being forgotten about, by taking a wee afternoon tea box to them it might cheer some folk up.
“It has gone down really well.
“It took a lot longer than I thought as at every door we have had a wee catch up and blether which has just been great.
“Everybody was delighted to see us and everybody I saw was fit and healthy and just happy.”
The tea dances, which are usually held quarterly, were cancelled as a result of the pandemic.
Mrs Sutherland added: “It is great to be able to see everybody in person again.
“We have given a box of Thornton’s chocolates, a sandwich, a wee coconut square, fruit scone, empire biscuits, a wee cake and some rocky road.
“Hopefully it will keep them going for a wee while.
“With my job at Tesco, I am usually in and around the community and that has been scaled back slightly with everything going on, so it has been great to get out and about and see everybody.”
