Saints Foundation deliver for isolated Sally

    Around the city, Saints Foundation has been delivering for elderly participants that have been struggling to stay independent throughout this difficult time.

    Whether through the Prescription Delivery Service with support from Southampton City Council and the NHS’ Clinical Commissioning Group or through online exercise videos and regular welfare phone calls. 

    One of those beneficiaries is Sally. The 82-year-old has been assisted with both her medication and remaining social through talking with staff. 

    Sally normally takes part in Senior Saints sessions during more normal times, but staff have made sure she is not forgotten. 

    “My pharmacy sent all my pills in little boxes, and then the Foundation deliver it,” explains Sally. “Everyone is very happy and very friendly, and absolutely fantastic.”

    Since lockdown Foundation volunteers have delivered more than 1,600 prescriptions from 40 different pharmacies.

    Alongside that, more than hundred workbooks have been sent out to local people. 

    “I get a regular phone call from Jake to find out how I’m doing and we have a good old laugh,” says Sally.

    “Then I have a phone call from Dawn. She’s a lovely lady. We decided that when this is all over, she and I will go for coffee somewhere.”

    The calls to Sally are among 3,500 that have been made by the Foundation as it continues contact with participants, with almost 600 hours of contact carried out.

    It is part of the wider help the Foundation and Southampton Football Club’s #SaintsAsOne programme has delivered to the area, including 13,000 meals cooked for the vulnerable and 9,000 units of food and drink donated to the NHS.

    “I would describe them as the most fantastic Foundation I have come into contact with,” says Sally. “Absolutely wonderful, and so, so caring. They’re wonderful people.”
