With over 120 people being supported by Swanley Town Council staff and the volunteers who help them the Mayor of Swanley Councillor Lesley Dyball has expressed her thanks for their stirling efforts.
Cllr Dyball said ‘Our staff continue to work through this period from our offices observing social distancing and from home to co-ordinate support to vulnerable residents and to deliver shopping and other items to them.
Of course this would not be possible without the support of local residents including our own councillors who are helping to deliver items and befriend those people who are alone and isolated on a daily basis’.
With the latest announcement from the Health Minister advising the country that we will be in lock down for at least another 3 weeks the town council is seeking additional assistance for vulnerable residents.
If you are able to volunteer, donate food or make a financial donation then the town council would like to hear from you.
CEO of Swanley Town Council Mr Steve Nash said ‘These are still challenging times and every offer of help we can get will ensure these services are sustainable.
I have done deliveries to our vulnerable residents myself and had to queue at Asda to collect shopping so I have every respect for the volunteers that are doing this several times a day’.
If you would like to help then please contact the town council via their web site, phone or social media page.
