Kelham Cooke, leader of South Kesteven District Council, announces SK Covid-19 Community Appeal in latest column
Leader of South Kesteven District Council, Kelham Cooke, talks about community support during the Covid-19 crisis in his latest column:
Volunteers are among the true unsung heroes within our communities. They willingly and freely give their time to help others, despite often having very busy lives themselves.
In our district, more than 1,500 volunteers have stepped forward to offer their help through the SKCommunity Hub during the coronavirus pandemic. Many more people are taking individual action in their towns and villages by checking on vulnerable neighbours, picking up medical supplies or essential shopping, or just staying in touch by phone to lessen the impact of isolation. For our most vulnerable residents, these acts of kindness are a lifeline.
