Things picked up today with 9 requests for assistance being received in the form of 4 x Welfare calls, 3 x Shopping trips and 2 x Miscellaneous jobs.
Branston Community Group – Good Neighbour Scheme.
Thank you to those who have volunteered their services. There are still few vacancies for committee members. If you are interested, have any questions or would like further details, please do not hesitate to get in contact. I’d love to hear from you.
It has been brought to my attention that there is a perception amongst some, that there isn’t a requirement or indeed demand for such a group. Without getting too sensitive, please be assured and I’m sure that these reports are testament that indeed, it is desperately needed. They results of the recent GNS provides evidence. Unfortunately, there are those who live in our midst that rely upon our services almost to the point of survival and some on a daily basis. Again without elaborating, there are those without families nearby, some not even in the country or even not having any family or friends at all. Redundancies and the ending of furlough has exasperated the situation. Overstretched welfare services have also impacted on physical and mental health support. The list goes on……I’m sure you’ll understand – can I please ask that where possible this message is put out there.
“Continuing to provide valuable support”
Take care and Stay Safe
Thank you for your continuing support – Andy
