UPDATE 4th June 2020

The Aylsham Coronavirus Community Helpline has now responded to well over 1000 calls and messages. We are still here for everyone who needs us and we will remain operational for as long as we are needed.

We are providing a range of practical and emotional support from a friendly chat to Foodbank, shopping and medicine deliveries.

On this National Volunteers Week we are particularly grateful for all of the individuals and organisations involved. Here is a picture of the wonderful Alison, who has answered hundreds of calls over the past couple of months, with a special Telephoning Teddy Bear from Hooked On Stitching to say thank you for all of her hard work.
