Don’t hesitate to ask for help – the Care Committee has the volunteers to help you…

We are so grateful to all the kind people of Chilworth as we now seem to spend more time dealing with new offers of help than requests for help !

Hopefully this means that the vulnerable in Chilworth are well cared for by family, friends and neighbours.

In the meantime, thank you to all those who have volunteered and are still on our list should all that change!

If you or anyone you know needs help in anyway give us a ring on 01483 538886. You can leave a message and someone will get back to you the same day , seven days a week.

Update from the Volunteers – CCC is for all!

As we face a continued lock down Chilworth Care Committee continues to offer help to all in the community , young and old, with shopping and collection of prescriptions.  If you , or anyone you know, needs help please ring our helpline 01483 538886. If you leave a message someone will get back to you the same day , seven days a week. Thank you so much to all the kind volunteers who have offered to help and made this service possible. At present we have more volunteers than a daily need for help so do not worry if your services have not yet been called upon. They are still greatly appreciated!

Thank you so much for all the kind offers of help during this difficult time. Over and above our usual kind group of volunteers at the Care Committee we have received an overwhelming  response of an additional 21 people willing to collect and deliver groceries and prescriptions in and around Chilworth.
Thank you so much. As people are becoming more  aware of our service we have been receiving a steady stream of requests left on our answer phone (01483 538886) for help from 11 people needing shopping and medicines collecting.
Thank you again to everybody.
