Congratulations go to Jude Rawlins and Alisha Fewell in Year 12, for being a big part of the Frome Christmas Get Together with Active and In Touch.  Both students gave up their Christmas Eve to pack hampers for 150 isolated, lonely, and vulnerable people. The hampers were delivered on Christmas Day by volunteers from all over the community.  Christmas can be an especially hard time for many people, both young and old, and the unprecedented difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic during 2020 have only served to magnify the isolation felt so acutely by so many. 

The Frome Big Christmas Get Together lunch usually provides an opportunity for both guests and hard-working volunteers to celebrate the true spirit of Christmas together and to be part of what is usually a very lively and special community event. However, this year, due to the COVID restrictions, the event could not be run as the inclusive social gathering at Frome Football Club in the way planned, so the hampers were organised as an alternative.  

Active and In Touch this year celebrates 10 years since its formation, primarily to provide all year-round support to residents such as those for whom the Frome event was originally conceived. Their volunteers visit, support, and befriend those people who have become out of touch with their communities in the surrounding area.
