VOLUNTEERS are wanted to help with a new flu service being provided in Topsham.

With medical chiefs predicting a winter flu surge, the Estuary League of Friends is running a service where volunteers pick up medication on behalf of people who don't live near friends or family.

A spokesperson for the league of friends said: "For those without family or friends nearby, flu friends are volunteers who will pick up any drugs on their behalf.

"Should the flu hit at a time when cupboards are bare, they will possibly help pick up emergency shopping."

If you would like to help people local to you and volunteer, or for more information, call the Estuary League of Friends on 01392 879009.
