Lockdown life at the Alice

Our doors may have been shut to the public since the end of March but our heart has carried on beating.  Our wonderful staff and volunteers have carried on working throughout the lock down, manning our Covid-19 helpline as well as cooking and delivering fresh meals and food parcels to the people of Teignmouth.

Here are some of our unsung heroes, without whom we could not provide this vital lifeline to our community.

This is Vanda, one of our core volunteers who has been helping people who have called into our helpline number 01626 626626, with shopping and prescriptions.


Caroline is one of our volunteers coordinating the many calls that come on our helpline.

Here are some of our amazing volunteers doing a Zoom training session. We have all learned to adapt during lock down!
