5 WAYS YOU CAN SUPPORT YOUR COMMUNITY FROM HOME

// 5 WAYS YOU CAN SUPPORT YOUR 

COMMUNITY FROM HOME //

So I think it's safe to say we have all had to adapt and change our day to day routines over the past couple of weeks and for some people this can be a challenge. So I thought I'd pop a little blog post together that suggests 5 ways you can make changes that not only help you out, but also help the people in our community that really need it right now.


one. 

Find out which local grocery businesses are offering contactless delivery. 

Thanks to a friend, I discovered that my fave local fruit and veg shop are taking payment over the phone and providing contactless delivery right to your doorstep. What a fantastic idea. It encourages people to stay home and it helps a small, independent business stay afloat whilst protecting themselves. Love it!

two.

Treat Yo Self or someone you LOVE to something delicious. 

There are a few amazing local bakeries/caterers offering contactless delivery of their yummy baked goods - Check out Revival Coffee and Donuts and rebel girl gang member Hello Baker Girl to see what goodies await! I got an amazing delivery of vegan donuts on Mother's Day and it really made my day. What is self-isolation without sugary snacks?!

three.

Check in on your neighbour (at a safe distance of course or via popping a note through their door!) I can't tell you how much a friendly face at the window or garden gate has meant to me over the last couple of weeks...

Maybe they're having to self-isolate and need some essentials or perhaps their dog needs walking? Maybe they just need a chat and let's face it, we are all only a phone call away from one another. 

four. 

Continue to shop small. 

Yes, I know a lot of businesses have to had close their doors and even halt delivery if it's not essential right now. But if you know someone who has a birthday coming up then perhaps you could invest in a voucher? Or if there's something you want that is still available to be delivered, then check out your local network first rather than rushing straight onto Amazon Prime. 

We have a wealth of independent makers/sellers right on our doorstep and they deserve any extra help they can get!

five.

Donate. 

Money, time, toiletries, food, skills, support. 

My mum is currently putting together craft packs for children in her local town and the wonderful Hull Blogger Violet Glenton is putting together care packages for our local NHS workers.

I love these kind of ideas because they show that despite having to stay home to safeguard others (if you're not a key worker) you can still contribute to your community and feel useful. 

Visit Violet's Instagram to find out more (link above). What a gal!
