Covid-19 cases rise – The Hub response!
We are all now aware that Covid-19 cases are rising once again across the UK and locally. The Hub continues to support anyone in our community who requires support. Our volunteers are on hand to support you with:
- Prescription collections from any local pharmacy or dispensary.
- Shopping on a weekly basis or for the duration of self-isolation or illness.
- Transportation to medical or other essential appointments within a 15 mile radius.
- Referrals to the local food bank, wellbeing team, financial support and more.
- Telephone befriending service.
Hub Fundraising: GoFundMe Page
As our grant from Warwickshire County Council comes to an end we are looking to raise funds so that the Hub can continue to support the community during Covid-19 and beyond. If you can help the Hub financially please make a donation by our GoFundMe page. Please also share this link with friends and family
