    Meet mother and daughter team Janet, Georgia and Claudia who decided to volunteer together for Age UK Barnet and do one big shop a week to support eight elderly people between them.

    ‘We’ve got it down to a tee now, but at the beginning we were going out every day’ says Georgia.

    They are all thoroughly enjoying supporting the older people they’ve been matched with by Age UK Barnet.
