Bradninch Together: Run by local people.  Co-ordinating informal support, neighbour to neighbour.

Face masks made by local volunteers

Selling in Spar from Thursday 23rd July

Bradninch Together are selling masks made by volunteers from all over the town. The masks are made to WHO standards with a filter pocket and 2 filters.

Each mask costs £4.

BradTog will make masks available for local people who might struggle to afford or access them.  Any additional profits will be donated to local organisations.

Suzanne Jary, having already raised money for the local Preschool, has been passing on her all knowledge. Teaching our volunteers how to cut sew and piece together our masks ready for you to use. Video on how to wear this mask.

WHAT IS BRADNINCH TOGETHER?

With coronavirus (COVID-19) still disrupting everyday life for many of us, the local community is more important than ever.  Our core offer is to ensure that everybody in Bradninch and Hele, regardless of circumstances can get practical help from a neighbour.  We also want to provide the community with a central point of information, in the form of this website, about sources of support and local initiatives. You can also visit the Bradninch Together Facebook page.

BradAid

When times are hard the BradAid fund will quickly help with money.

We are responding to the Coronavirus pandemic with funds donated by the people of Bradninch and Hele.

HOW CAN I ACCESS PRACTICAL SUPPORT FROM BRADNINCH TOGETHER?

There is a network of volunteers across our community and the sorts of things we can help with include shopping, collecting medication and dog walking, as well as a friendly phone call. Click here to contact your Zone

Co-ordinator.  They will put you in touch with someone who can help. The health and safety of everyone is paramount.  Please note that anybody visiting your home as part of Bradninch Together will arrange the visit in advance and will carry ID. 

 

Volunteers will not come into your home when visiting.  Please let us know when calling if you or anybody in your household is suffering from Covid-19 so that arrangements can be made to minimise risk.
