If you need help, the Coronavirus Volunteer Support group is still here for you if you are shielding or self-isolating.
We will, however, be operating a bit differently during this second lockdown as many of our previous volunteers are still working full time.
We hope that you will keep your independence and try to do your own weekly shopping either online with your supermarket or via Morrison’s Doorstep Delivery (takes orders by telephone – 0345 611 6111 option 5). We can help you (via the Shipley Hub) to get a delivery slot with your supermarket if you are struggling to get one.
For those mid-week staples like bread, milk, fresh veg, etc, or items which are urgently required, our volunteers are going to be available on a daily rota system to purchase these for anyone needing them. To access their help, please contact Kelley or Jane who will allocate that day’s volunteer to buy the groceries you need.
Emily will continue to deliver prescriptions, so please let us know when your prescription is ready at the pharmacy.
If you are feeling lonely and blue at the thought of further isolation we can provide a listening ear and friendly chat.
If you feel you would be able to offer your help as a volunteer please contact us.
Together, with your help and ours, we hope to provide support for you and everyone else. Please do get in touch if you need anything, your needs are just as valid and important as anyone’s and we want to help.
Kelley, Jane and Sally
