CORONA VIRUS - CAN YOU HELP?

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO HELP WITH SHOPPING etc

Buriton Parish Council, the Neighbourcare Group and St Mary’s church are combining forces to help our older residents, the vulnerable and those who are self-isolating.

The Neighbourcare Group already has a small but invaluable team of volunteers – BUT WE NEED MORE.

CAN YOU HELP BY  getting shopping, prescriptions or just offering a friendly phone call?

We will be using the Neighbourcare central ‘call point’ to receive all requests from parishioners and to distribute jobs amongst volunteers, predominantly by email. You would only need to reply if you think that you can help with a particular job …

You will be reimbursed via BACS for the shopping by our Coordinator, Peter Nixon. All you will need to do is simply leave the shopping at the door.  No contact with the recipient is required – or encouraged. Your mileage expenses will be refunded in due course (at the Government set rate of 45p per mile).

Please contact Peter via 07769 691919 or 01730 269034 or pillmeadhouse@btinternet.com if you think that you may be able to help in any way, however small.

We would particularly welcome assistance from younger residents: anyone in their 20s, 30s, 40s or 50s.

Coronavirus spreads.   Please take precautions: avoid physical contact and wash your hands regularly.
