In total, Hubert has received 18 (eighteen!) offers of help, some from individuals, some from families (parents volunteering themselves and their children).
Most offers are for running errands and for shopping. With supermarkets struggling to cope with the demand for home deliveries, help with shopping is likely to remain key.
There are several offers of providing emotional support; talking to people who are very anxious; helping with calming strategies.
Lending books, including doorstep delivery of children’s’ books and adult fiction.
Ordering things online for those who are not familiar with it.
Launching a group website – followed up in a separate message.
Leading mindful meditation group over zoom/skype.
And finally, taking the long view, an offer to organise a victory party when the corona virus is vanquished!
