New COVID-19 Support Line in Aberfeldy
Updated: Apr 7
Working together, Tay Valley Timebank and The Birks Cinema Trust have set up a COVID-19 support group, in and around Aberfeldy, for people who are self-isolating over the next few months. We have distributed postcards with the phone number, 07507479555, to all households.
Please call us if you need some help - so far we have given help with dog walking, food shopping, prescription collection, compost delivery, phone calls. We currently have 50 volunteers from Fortingall to Strathtay and everywhere in between, but are happy to take additional names for a backup list.
Volunteers need to have no underlying medical conditions, which they feel could put them at greater risk from the Coronavirus. Should you be healthy but older and wish to help there are for instance people at home who need a friendly call to help with loneliness.
If you would like to volunteer your time, please e-mail your contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org (Name, Address, E-mail Address, and phone number).
