A REDDITCH museum was one of 12 change points used in a Meals on Wheels road relay across 300 miles.

Delivery drivers from Agincare Cuisine Worcestershire, which provides hot dinners to people across the county, took part in the relay at Forge Mill to celebrate National Community Meals Week.

The week, which is organised by the National Association of Care Catering, aims to highlight the importance of keeping vulnerable and elderly people nourished across England.

The roast beef and apple pie dinners left Nottingham at 7am and travelled through ten counties before arriving at a couple's home in Herefordshire at 5.30pm the same day.

A spokesman from the National Association of Care Catering said: "This exciting annual event highlights the vital service and gives all service providers, both supply and delivery services, the opportunity to raise the profile of the excellent service and community lifeline they deliver."
