Shefford Town Council have set up a dedicated support line 07923 224636 for anyone in the community who needs help during the COVID 19 crisis. The Town Council are in the process of co-ordinating local support and are working together with Churches Together, Shefford Good Neighbours and Lloyds Pharmacy, with other local businesses coming on board to offer their support daily as the crisis deepens. Some businesses are offering goods and takeaway services with free delivery (including a low-cost nutritious lunch/dinner menu), whilst others can take card payments over the phone with goods being delivered by our volunteers.
We have a group of vetted volunteers, local residents who will be working as a team to help those who need support; be that to pick up shopping, walk a dog, post a letter, pay a bill, collect a medication prescription, delivery a hot meal or just a chat over the phone. Our volunteers will be issued with ID badges and a password to share when organising delivery.
Many neighbours, relatives and friends are rallying together to help each other during these unprecedented times, however we urge everyone to be vigilant as there are some unscrupulous people who will take advantage in times of crisis; please don’t hand over bank details or bank cards to anyone, and please don’t hand over any cash unless you trust the person implicitly.
Phone 07923 224636 and if we are unable to answer straight away, please leave your name and number and someone will call you back.
