The churches of Groby and Ratby, together with the local and borough councils, are working together to support our communities at this time of need.
Can you volunteer to help phone the isolated, bring deliveries to people who are self-isolating or similar? Can you donate food and supplies for real emergencies, as we set up a temporary foodbank (storage in Ratby Parish Church) ? Please do contact us with your details so we can help link volunteers with those in need.
Or are you in need of help in some way - of phone contact to fight isolation, or with no family nearby who can help with supplies or similar? Please contact us and we will do all we can to help.
We have a dedicated email address (email@example.com) and the church office is acting as a hub for telephone contact on 0116 239 3768 and we hope will be staffed Mon-Fri 9am-5pm. Alternative contacts and for out-of-hours are Ozzy on 07808 585825, Chris on 07880 711222 or Brian on 07940 513760.
