A valiant band of contributors from the churches in our district provide a weekly Christian message for listeners to Tempo FM, Wetherby's very own local radio station. They are currently broadcast at about 2.15pm. Do listen out for them if you get the chance - or just listen to Tempo anyway.
If you fail to catch them live, then you can find some recent recordings here.
Community Care Volunteers
COVID-19 (Coronavirus) response in the Wetherby Ward
One of the encouraging things about the current Covid-19 pandemic is that many people are volunteering their services to help those who are in need.
It is important that this co-ordinated wisely, both to protect those in need and those that volunteer. Our three ward councillors (Cllrs. Alan Lamb, Norma Harrington and Linda Richards) have drawn attention to the dedicated volunteer network that has been established by Leeds City Council.
Please note that volunteers should be healthy and low risk.
There are two tiers of volunteers:
Volunteers who have a current DBS and would be willing to volunteer to carry out non-personal care tasks to assist people with care and support needs. Such tasks might include: shopping, collecting prescriptions, preparing a meal, assistance with laundry, just checking/reassurance by visit or phone call, sitting with someone for a while. This list is not exhaustive. We would support volunteers with training where appropriate and they would be issued with an identification badge.
People looking out for their neighbours who may be in some way or another vulnerable but not in receipt of formal care whether self-funded or state supported. This might be about supporting people who choose to self-isolate. It will also include the deployment of volunteer community leaders to support community cohesion related activities.
If you would like to volunteer, please sign up at www.doinggoodleeds.org.uk.
