British Red Cross help people affected by snow

As heavy snow caused chaos across the county this weekend, volunteers from the British Red Cross were out helping those who needed it most. Emergency response volunteers have been on-call to help those hit worst by the bad weather.

Volunteers transported district nurses in 4 x 4 vehicles to the homes of patients unable to get out because of the snow. Ten homes were visited overnight Friday and around fifteen on Saturday, with the team of nurses from the NHS to provide patients with essential medication around Leeds.

"Our volunteers have been out and about throughout Leeds working extremely hard over the weekend to help those who need their help. We will continue to be there for those in crisis during the snow inYorkshire throughout the weekend.

"We're so grateful for our volunteers who have been giving up their time to get out and support those who need it - they are doing sterling job"

– John Naylor, service manager for emergency response Yorkshire
