Volunteer With Whitehead Storehouse

Fancy using your one form of daily exercise to help your community? Why not volunteer to help deliver these leaflets to everyone’s home in Whitehead, Ballycarry and Islandmagee?

https://www.whiteheadstorehouse.com/Looking after our neighbours and friends is a marathon, not a sprint and not everyone has access to Facebook or the Internet. Your help in delivering these leaflets is crucial in letting them know that help is available for the most vulnerable in our community, as well as the disadvantaged. For those who are physically able and who are not shielding, self-isolating or in a high-risk group, you could help the community by helping us to deliver these leaflets.

Whitehead Storehouse is coordinating deliveries and other help for those who are self isolating, shielding or who need to stay physically distanced from others. If you can help, please contact us by phoning or texting 0759 621 3763. Or you can email us at Whiteheadstorehouse@gmail.com

Deliveries For People Self Isolating

During the corona virus emergency, Whitehead Storehouse will coordinate volunteers and can act as a central point for arranging deliveries of food and other necessities where necessary, to those who are self isolating and unable to use the local shop delivery services. Local shops have let us know that they will do deliveries. Business names and phone numbers for calling to purchase goods and have them delivered can be found by clicking here.
