In mid March I was in bed with Corona Virus and self-isolating.
For symptom relief and comfort, I started to use many of the items in my Cancer Gift Parcels. It occurred to me that we have stock of hand sanitizer and tissues and other items that people who are self-isolating (like I was) may need. So I set up a Corona Care Parcel for people who need these items.
However, it was important that we didn’t make any profit. So I approached my suppliers to see if anyone would help us supply care packages at reasonable prices. It is so wonderful that almost everyone I have approached so far has agreed to give their services and items for free or at cost price. We are now asking if you can help too.
Hopefully we can all make a small difference to this big problem
