How the Nantwich Buddies started...
At the beginning of lock down, RedShift Radio had to abruptly stop preparations for our long -awaited relaunch on 1st April as a Community Podcast Network (previously we were broadcasting 70+ hours of live online radio).
So, to keep us busy and make good use of our strong community network, we swung into action and set up a volunteer support network to help households that needed to isolate.
The first 40 volunteers came from our immediate network, family and friends within the first three weeks. We began working with Cheshire East's People Helping People team who received the calls from the general public asking for help, mainly with shopping and prescription collection.
To date we have supported over 160 households in Nantwich and our volunteer network has topped the 60 mark.
Where are we now?
We are here for our town of Nantwich, for anyone in our community that needs us. We can help with shopping, dog walking, basic gardening jobs, befriending, prescription collection, whatever people or organisations need help with in Nantwich - just ask!
