Our informal group of local volunteers was brought together in March 2020 under the umbrella of Sonning Support Covid-19 to provide non-medical help to anyone in the area that needed it during the initial ‘lockdown’ period.
Within the first eight months we completed 150 requests from residents for shopping, prescription requests and other small tasks and have now become known as Sonning Support.
With the generous support of Sonning residents we have also been able to help within the wider community by making ‘Scrubs ‘for care homes and hospices as well as collecting and donate food and clothing to local charities and foodbanks.
We plan to continue to help within the community for as long as we are needed. From providing a friendly phone call to supporting those who cannot leave home in the short term we are here to provide assistance.
