PETT MUTUAL AID – UPDATE

PETT MUTUAL AID

Great News! We now have nearly 30 volunteers who have signed up to help residents in Pett & Pett Level who are self-isolating as a result of Coronavirus. Thank you to all of them!

What is Pett Mutual Aid?

We are a sub group of Rye Mutual Aid, which was established just 2 weeks ago and now has over 600 registered volunteers working in Rye and the surrounding towns and villages. All the volunteers follow the national guidelines for health and safety and wear a Rye Mutual Aid ID badge.

We are here to support you should need help now or in the coming weeks.

  • Help can include the collection of food shopping (essential items only)
  • Collection of prescriptions
  • A friendly phone chat on a regular basis
  • Walking the dog, post mail

Many people have been helped by family & friends over the past couple of weeks, but this could change as more people  self-isolate.

Pett Mutual Aid is there to provide a back up and safety net, when your normal support networks fail.

The Rye Mutual Aid website (www.ryemutualaid.org) contains a lot of valuable information, especially the list of shopping outlets offering home delivery. We have been working closely with these local businesses and the information is updated daily on the Rye Mutual Aid website. You can access the list here: www.ryemutualaid.org/local-offers

How do you access help?:

The Mutual Aid group has two Volunteer Co-ordinators, John Case and Frances Hadfield. They will manage requests for help and assistance and then pass on to a registered Volunteer, who will contact you make arrangements to carry out the request where they are able to.

John – 07525 032198

Frances – 07714 281085
