Recruitment company REED in Southampton has donated chocolates to us to be distributed to the lonely and isolated in the community during the current Coronavirus lockdown.
Volunteer, Kathy Hicken said: “We’re very grateful that REED has given us this chocolate. It will really boost the morale of those who are currently stuck at home and help make their lives a whole lot more bearable in the current situation. It was very kind of the company and its team to think of our service users at this time.
A sweet treat such as chocolate can be a great mood enhancer. Chocolate contains the chemical phenylethylamine, which triggers the release of endorphins, therefore boosting your mood!”
