“Fred continues to organise events online to keep people in touch, recognising that lots of people were isolated and lonely, even helping to provide the technology to some people so that they could join in. Fred has hosted cook-a-longs, quizzes and race nights, and in the process has raised £20,000 for charities since the start of the first lockdown. Fred has provided an important virtual space for people to come together and feel part of our community that might not be able to see each other in person but that is still very much caring for local residents.”
