PeriAid - help for Pirbright residents
PeriAid – keeping our community safe during the Corona virus crisis
To keep ourselves and others safe during the current pandemic, large numbers of people are now self-isolating in their homes. PeriAid is a community response initiated by PeriNews, the Parish Council and Pirbright Church to support those of us who cannot get out, by making links with those who may be able to help. We may be physically apart, but we can make sure everyone has some human contact and help with essentials like shopping, collecting prescriptions, posting letters.
If you are well and able to go out, you will have found a card in the April edition of PeriNews that you can use to reach out to your neighbours with offers of help. If you can’t go out, please pass them to our volunteers who can.
We are asking local clubs, societies and organisations, to keep in touch with all their members, so that information, requests for support and offers of help can quickly go through already existing social networks. Our aim is that, as far as possible, everyone can be in contact with someone they already know, ’neighbours not strangers’. That way we can help to keep everyone safe, including volunteers and those staying at home.
If you have not had any contact through your usual social groups, and you would like some support whilst you self-isolate, or would like to offer your help, contact Lindsay Graham on 01483 476432 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Julia Douetil, on email@example.com.
We may be isolating, but let’s make sure that no-one in our community is alone. A card that you can complete offering help to your neighbours was included in the April Newsletter. Or you can download one here
A box scheme for purchasing meat & vegetables was launched by Fulks Butchers and The Bakers Dozen. To learn how to place an order, please download the information form here. You will also have found one in your April edition of PeriNews.
