A MOTHER and daughter duo have been baking treats and donating to them to those who are self-isolating due to lockdown guidelines.

Marie Griffith, 33, and Lydia Griffith-Jones, 11, of Lundwood, are used to baking at home for fun, but the Outwood Academy Shafton pupil decided she wanted to help out those who needed it during these unprecedented times.

Marie said: “We’ve been making up treat boxes and delivering them to the elderly and other people who are self-isolating as our way of helping out.

“Everyone’s stuck in the house at the minute so my daughter thought it would be a nice idea to create them and we’ve donated 29 so far.

“It’s all out of our own pocket and we’re not asking for any money for them – our main aim is just to be kind to those who need support.”

Marie has worked at the High Stone Mews residential home for the past three years, and feels that the community spirit now is stronger than it has ever been.

“I work nights at the care home and the morale is extremely high, everyone is coming together and trying to be as positive as possible,” she added.

“The community spirit is clear, when we were delivering the boxes, people were extremely grateful and there were quite a few people who were getting emotional.

“Lydia just wanted to help people and she did it by doing something she loves to do as well, it’s fantastic.”
