How can you help us?

We need volunteers for a variety of tasks such as:

  • shopping for isolated people 

  • being a telephone friend

  • taking people to medical appointments

Safety - as a group of volunteers we need to keep ourselves and our community safe. Goods being delivered are being handled minimally but make sure you wear the gloves being provided and follow precautionary advice.

Thank you!
