Tillicoultry, Coalsnaughton and Devonside Community Council (TCD CC) reached out to their community to seek support to meet the challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic. Approximately thirty community members answered the call to meet the needs of others.
TCDCC directed that amazing commitment to where it will be of most use within a robust infrastructure created to ensure the safety of both community volunteers and the vulnerable individuals they may support.
Volunteers now help their community through:
- supervising queues at the entrance to Macks Pharmacy
- being part of a rota manning the dedicated phone number for local people to ring to let them know how they need support.
- gathering pictures and cards created by local school and nursery children to distribute to anyone who falls ill and to residents of care homes, sheltered housing, etc.
