Thaddeus drove neighbours to the grocery shop

When I worked for Clapham Park Project and drove their van, I used to take the elderly women shopping every Thursday. They used to love it so much. I also used to drive the young boys to the football matches. I distributed information around Clapham Park to residents: changes to meetings, flyers, etc. I served tea and coffee to the Over 50s (until I thought they could do it themselves.) And I was a “Lollipop” at the children’s crossing. I stopped driving in 2015 and I don’t think there’s a minibus anymore. I used to be very busy, I didn’t have enough time for myself then. Now I do have time but also now the legs are very weak.
