TAL­LU­LAH DEEKS, 11

First News - - SPECIAL REPORT -

Tal­lu­lah is the youngest vol­un­teer at the Well­beloved Club, a Sun­day lunch club for over-65s. To make these lunches as spe­cial as pos­si­ble, Tal­lu­lah buys flow­ers with her pocket money and makes ar­range­ments for the ta­bles. She al­ways takes the time to chat to every­one at the club, and brings light and laugh­ter to older peo­ple who might oth­er­wise not speak to any­one for days. She is in­spired to be there “so peo­ple don’t feel lonely”. She was given her award by Dame Mary Perkins from Spec­savers.
