General manager Andrea Crowley said: "My team have been magnificent in how they have risen to every challenge during this pandemic and we are proud to play our part in this next essential phase to ensure the most vulnerable are protected.”
One resident, Margaret, 81, said: “It was organised very well and I am glad to see everyone getting it at once.”
