At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, members of the local community of Acomb came together to volunteer their time to support the vulnerable people in the village. Leaflets where delivered to every household confirming designated volunteer name and contact information. The volunteers have helped with shopping for food and essential items, picking up prescriptions and also baking and adding to food parcels.
Recently, (February 2021) the Government extended the categories for individuals with additional health needs to shield. If you have received a letter from your GP asking you to shield and now require any support to be able to achieve this, contact your named volunteer.
The support network remains in place, if you have lost your volunteer details please contact Lorna on 07711 334521 or at firstname.lastname@example.org who will be able to link you with your volunteer.
