After speaking to some of the homes they requested drinks (supported by JP Takeaway), Bottled water (supported by Eurospar bridge street), Moisturing cream (supported by Partridges Chemist) and baskets of fruit (supported by Home grown fruit and vegetable). It is sad to hear that some of the homes already have some residents with Covid-19.
