In this time of uncertainty and many members of our community having to self-isolate this is the perfect opportunity for Rotary in Maidenhead to do what it does best, helping those in our local community who might need a little extra support during difficult times. With this in mind we are formulating a community response team.
If you are concerned about going out and are self-isolating or in quarantine due to Coronavirus, Rotary in Maidenhead have a small number of volunteers who can run errands for you such as doing your shopping, collecting medications, posting letters and help walking your dog. We can even try to brighten your day just a bit by giving you a friendly call to help pass the time.
Lisa Hunter, project coordinator and member of Maidenhead Bridge Rotary, commented "Our worry is that people are being told to self-isolate for two weeks and at the end of that we find out that they haven't had any food to eat or friendly support. We want to make sure everybody has got somebody to keep them supplied."
