Dear Partners, Previous Funders, Potential Funders,
During this Covid 19 Outbreak, we are offering free labour for essential car repairs (maximum labour time-one hour) for NHS staff, Social Care Staff, Care Providers, Caring Community, Carers, Community Groups, Community Car Services, Volunteers and Undertakers.
This will support the needs of a number of essential workers and any financial pressure they could be feeling in maintaining their vehicles for essential travel.
Bookings are one hour slots.
We will be carrying out appropriate social distancing with essential hygiene before and after each customer visit and car repairs. We have a volunteer who will be carrying out disinfecting key surfaces in the workshop and Vehicles before and after work has been completed.
With our available team (volunteers and staff), we will be able carry out basic repairs and maintenance to around 6/7 cars a day.
I attach our flyer for your interest:
Other ways we are supoprting our community:
We are running our help line for people to just chat, or for those who have more serious mental health problems so that we can safeguard them from harm to themselves. We direct refer to the crisis team, should the need arise.
We are also running our food bank service and utilising donations of dried and tinned goods whilst mixing with fresh produce. We are regularly shopping and sharing the deliveries. We are amazed how many people have requested our food bank service.
Please pass this information on to any oragnisations you feel we may have missed and to members of your community, as appropriate. We would be grateful if you could arrange for the flyer to be uploaded to your social media sites.
Thankyou in advance for sharing and circulating this. Here at Rusty Road, the team do really value all the help and support we have had from the community, local businesses, statutory agencies, local councils and many more.
