Supporting Watchet Community during Coronavirus

Watchet Coronavirus Community Help is a group of volunteers in Watchet working to support our community through the coronavirus outbreak. 
We have a band of Protects Volunteers who deliver essential food and medicine to those who are isolating and are unable to get to shops. 
We also have a band of Connects Volunteers who run the telephone helplines and are available to talk to anyone who would like a good natter with another human in these times of isolation.

Watchet Coronavirus Community Help is made up of organisations and individuals working together. We are supported by Watchet Coastal Community Team, Onion Collective, Cotton Street, Watchet Town Council, Village Agents, Mind in Somerset and WACET.

This Go Fund Me page is in response to local people who are asking to help support these services. 

Money raised from this page will go to two causes. 

1.       Food donations to Quantock Foodbank.
We will buy the dry goods and canned foodstuffs needed for food parcels, we will use our volunteers to collect from the supermarket and deliver to the Quantock Foodbank.  Quantock Foodbank and Village Agents will then distribute food parcels to those most in need.

2.       PPE for carers:
We will pay for the manufacture and delivery of essential protective equipment, such as scrubs and masks to care workers in local care homes and micro providers as and where needed to support the safety of these essential key workers.

If you would like to support the funding of this important work please do give what you can.  Thank you for supporting this vital and important community work to help those who need it most.
