The Speaker helps deliver Meals on Wheels
THE Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, took on a completely different role this week as he helped to deliver Meals on Wheels.
He was one of a number of well-known personalities who helped apetito deliver meals to residents across the country throughout National Community Meals Week.
Mr Bercow, who is MP for Buckingham, which covers Princes Risborough, said: "The meals on wheels service is a vital lifeline for many elderly people, enabling them to stay in their own homes for longer. Nutritious meals are only part of the package – it’s the human contact, the regularity of seeing somebody and having that engagement that has such huge benefits."
Operated from its Aylesbury depot, apetito is contracted by Buckinghamshire County Council.
