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.
VOLUNTEERS To Deliver To Those Self Isolating
Although a number of shops have said they will deliver goods to customers, there may still need to be some volunteers to help with this, if the numbers requiring deliveries get too high for the shops to manage. Volunteers who wish to help with deliveries to those who are self isolating or unable to go to the shops to get food, should email Whitehead Storehouse at Whiteheadstorehouse@gmail.com and provide the following information:
- Contact Details,
- Whether you have access to a car and
- Any particular skills you may have
