Rural Wisdom – A Vision for Change


I am receiving an increasing number of requests from people in the village who need assistance with prescription collection; this could be a one-off occasion, as when individuals become unwell, or it could be a weekly request. If you feel this is something you would be able to help with,  please complete the attached application form. All volunteers will be fully insured, receive training, Identification, a DBS check and continued support. If you would like any additional information, please do give me a call.  I have attached the poster as a png, please share on social media and amongst your contacts. We really do need more volunteers to meet the need for support.

Many Thanks

Graham Sherwood
