We wanted to update on what we’ve been up to over the past week. Mostly, we’ve been supporting the brilliant teams of local volunteers who have sprung up to help our community during the crisis. We’re also gathering information about available services and wider support so we can share this with volunteers and residents. If you’d like to get involved with helping your neighbours at a street level please contact us, and we’ll put you in touch with other people helping in your area.
We particularly need people to cover:
Bedford Road, Blackhorse Lane, Darndale Close, Dudley Road, Eastleigh Road, Jewel Road, Kinross Terrace, Lisbon Road, Luton Road, Omnibus Way, Palmerston Road, Phoenix Close, Priory Court, Queensland Close, Russell Road, and Sherwood Close.
So if you’re on any of those streets and can help out – or you’re already helping, but we don’t know about you – get in touch!
We’re also thinking and talking to people about how we can best support the mental and physical health, and the community spirit, of our area over the weeks to come. We’ve had loads of great ideas come in (keep them coming!) and we’ll be updating with news and plans as soon as we can. If you’d like to be involved in this part of our work – again, contact us, and we’ll keep you in the loop.
We’ve always known that Walthamstow is special, but it’s amazing to see our community uniting in a crisis, and hopefully together we can keep our spirits up, and make sure that everyone that needs help can get it.Share This
