At the end of this month our Covid Crisis Volunteer Response comes to an end.
More than 700 people stepped forward to offer help, with around 400 of them deployed to support some 1000 residents. To every single one of them we give our heartfelt thanks.
Volunteers have been shopping and collecting prescriptions for families in isolation; chatting to lonely people on the phone; delivering food parcels to those in need and performing many, many more acts of kindness all over Sandwell.
Some of them are saying it’s been a life-changing experience and they will seek new opportunities to help out in future, Covid or (hopefully!) no Covid.
We will soon be launching a new web site where opportunities to help out can be posted by voluntary and community organisations. Meanwhile search and like Let’s Go Sandwell on Facebook to keep in touch, whether you’re looking for volunteers or have a little time to give.
We think you have proved that Sandwell folk are caring, active and ready to help out whatever challenges are placed in our path. Let’s stay together and keep it that way.
