Tamworth Meals on Wheels – 5000 meals a month
Published November 26, 2019
Forsyths Principal, Phil Bolton has been recognised by Tamworth Meals on Wheels for more than ten years of service as Honorary Treasurer. Phil recently introduced Forsyths Business Services Manager, Emily Fritsch to the organisation, adding to the team of volunteers making this vital community service possible.
The pair have been recognised by Tamworth Meals on Wheels for their extraordinary contribution to the service.
"We became involved with Tamworth Meals on Wheels when it was difficult for the volunteer organisation to find an accountant to help them with their growing demand.
“We’ve met once a month for ten years to discuss the running of the not-for-profit and to work on the best way to keep cost of the service down so that we can help as many people as possible.
“Meals on Wheels doesn’t make any money – our goal is to be as financially savvy as possible so that our community can benefit from our regular volunteer visits and homely meals,’ Phil said.
Tamworth Meals on Wheels operates from a commercial kitchen on Goonoo Goonoo Road. They are totally volunteer run and are always looking for drivers and kitchen help.
