A GRANT of nearly £50,000 has been awarded to a Torridge voluntary service which helps to support older people in rural communities.

TTVS was awarded £49,525 by the Department for Health as part of its new Health and Social Care Fund.

The money will be used to support TTVS's Supporting Rural Independent Living scheme, which aims to increase the number of volunteers supporting older people in local communities.

TTVS chief executive Julia Lock said: "We are delighted to receive this funding which will enable TTVS to develop a range of much needed services that support older people in the rural communities in and around Winkleigh, Woolsery and Halwill."
