Given the current global situation and the spread of COVID-19, we wanted to share a few ways that you can support your community during these trying times:

  • Give blood, hospitals continue to need blood supply now and in the coming weeks more than ever as blood banks enter severe shortages. Read all necessary guidelines with concern to the virus before booking an appointment
  • Donate food, initial panic buying due to COVID-19 meant that food banks and shelters are running low on supplies and food and require further support from their local communities
  • Look out for your neighbours, offer help with shopping and other errands. This extends beyond those most at risk; stretched medical staff, key workers, delivery drivers, volunteers, etc.
  • Maintain safe practices whilst helping others by washing your hands often, maintaining 2 meters distance from everyone when out, stay outside of peoples homes, don’t spread yourself too thin
  • Increase communication, video calls, virtual games when you can with others, especially those who live and are in quarantine alone
  • Support small and local businesses when you can and it’s safe to do so
