Be a volunteer during this Coronavirus outbreak

Post by Sunderland Nut »

If you are not working because of the Coronavirus outbreak why not become a volunteer to help others.
The NHS are looking for 250,000 volunteers to help people get through this nasty COVID-19 pandemic.
You can volunteer to:

01) Deliver medicines from pharmacies
02) Drive patients to and from hospital and doctors appointments
04) Make regular phone calls to check on people isolating at home so they know there are people who care.

More information about rallying the troops is on the official NHS website.

That's great, they get to help someone, and they help themselves feel better.
