National Volunteers' Week

Mark Holdsworth

The internet can be a lifeline to thousands of local people self-isolating. Mark Holdsworth is among scores of volunteers helping others get online. Mark, who volunteers with a group in Penicuik, recently helped a neighbour to connect to an online funeral of her friend of 75 years. It meant so much to her to be part of the service, happening on the west of Scotland, as she had lost three friends in the same week.
