Kilninver & Kilmelford Community Council

COVID-19 Volunteer Group

YOU ARE NOT ALONE

HELP IS JUST A CALL/EMAIL AWAY.

If you are self-isolating and are in one of the at-risk groups (over 70 or with underlying health conditions) we have mobilised a support team that can help you with:

  • Picking up shopping
  • Posting / collecting mail
  • Collecting medicines
  • Urgent supplies 
  • A friendly chat

Because of the spread-out nature of our community we have divided our volunteer recruits into “sub-areas” to facilitate assistance within a manageable distance / amount of households.

Below you will find a list of volunteers in your area who you can call on to help. In the first instance, please call a member of your area team but everyone below is willing to help so if you are feeling in need DON’T BE SHY and reach out by whichever way suits you best.

IF ANY OTHER VOLUNTEERS WOULD LIKE TO OFFER THEIR ASSISTANCE PLEASE CONTACT louisarogers@gmail.com stating your area, name & contact methods, or call her on 01852 316 283 / 07968 077 605
