Andover Neighbourcare Charity Shop has now reopened. 16 Union Street. Sorry we are not taking donations until the end of August so we can make a safe area to quarantine . We look forward to seeing you
If anyone has had anything in the back of their cupboards that’s they know they won’t use, the YMCA is looking for donations of food and essential supplies.
Our cupboards are looking rather bare today at the YMCA. If you are tidying your cupboards and have any jars, tins or essential items that you will not use, please consider donating them to the essential food box project at the YMCA. We are getting daily requests for these essential packages, but rely on local donations to keep us going.
You can also use the drop of point at The Co-operative Food Andover, East Anton Farm Road.
15th July 2020
Neighbourcare is getting back to the new normal but still with strict safe distancing measures. These measures will be in place in the office until January 2021 with the guidance of Health and Safety. The office will remain on skeleton staff levels.
Unfortunately nothing will be the same and our priority is to ensure our essential services and what we were set up originally to deliver keep running. These are our Home Help, cleaning, gardening, sitting service, essential transport and also our new Buddie Scheme.
All our transport has now resumed with passengers being asked to wear a mask or face coverings. All our drivers will wear masks and gloves.
The book shop has opened successfully with safety measures in place and is proving very popular.
Volunteers are clearing the charity shop out at the moment to make it safe and we hope to get the shop running again in August. We are not taking donations at the moment.
The Silver Surfers will remain closed to the public until 2021. The Health and Safety officer has deemed this service as an unnecessary risk, due to social distancing, the size of the office and the well being of the office staff.
This epidemic is far from over and my priority is to ensure all my staff and volunteers are as safe as possible through this winter period and beyond.
Let’s hope 2021 brings a better year for everyone.
Andover Neighbourcare is pleased to be holding food boxes for the Food Bank during the pandemic. The office in Union Street will be open Monday - Friday between 9am - 4pm for collections. The office is on lock down, so we will only give boxes out to people with vouchers. These vouchers are to be placed on the doorstep. The person who is to receive the boxes must them move to the other side of street whilst the voucher is taken in and the food boxes placed on the step. This will be on a trial basis to help with the distribution of boxes in the the centre of the town.
ANDOVER NEIGHBOURCARE UPDATE
Neighbourcare is pleased to announce that the charity has nearly covered all their 1000 members with support.
Neighbourcare will also fetch prescriptions and also do shopping if needed.
We would like to hear from any one who would like to help but they must be police checked if dealing with our clients.
A huge thank you to our Handy Helpers and volunteers that work tirelessly and quietly to support the community.
To all our members, who many have been with us 20 years, stay home, stay safe and we hope to be back to normal soon.
