Chesham have started a Facebook page to help the vulnerable with the coronavirus.

The page is called 'Chesham Help for coronavirus' and is a place where people can post if they're in need as well as volunteer groups offering their services.

The initiative is supported by the council, Rotary Chesham, and Chiltern Chamber.

There is a phoneline which can be called between 7:30am and 10pm.

This can be used for people to just have a chat if they're struggling with social isolation or to organise someone to pick up prescriptions or shopping for them.

They emphasise that they'll bring back receipts and to make sure not to give money or credit cards to anyone before they collect the items.


Other organisations such as Citizens Advice have also offered their help on the group.

They said: "New number for anyone who is in need of a food bank voucher in Chiltern [is 01494 785 660].

"Please only use this number for food bank vouchers. You can call us on our Bucks Advice line 0344 245 1289 for everything else."

People are alos posting uplifting videos and posts in time of the criss, to try and keep those struggling thinking positive.

Call 0800 246 1618  to contact Chesham help for coronavirus or visit their Facebook page.
