As we are advised to reduce contact to prevent our communities being overwhelmed by Covid 19. Hollingdean residents have been swift to respond in settting up a mutual aid network. Hollingdean Covid 19 is a group of residents ready to help those in the community who are struggling to access shopping, supplies or some human contact. With support from Hollingdean Development Trust contact cards have been printed – and at time of writing all but 12 streets in the area have volunteer reps delivering cards to every household offering contact for support.
While its a challenging time for all of us, the Covid 19 crisis is showing Hollingdean to be a community prepared to care. Thanks to everyone giving their own time and energy to help others – so that we can all stay healthy, connected and safe.
Keep in touch with developments on the Hollingdean Covid 19 Mutual Aid group on Facebook. If you have neighbours who aren’t online let them know. If you haven’t received a card through your door and want to volunteer or need help contact email@example.com
