When good neighbours become good friends!

Creating Healthy Community

I love it when you call...

Connectors have facilitated the support of over 650 local households since the pandemic started in March 2019, by maximising neighbourliness! Knaresborough is jam-packed with fantastic residents who just want to help. This community has responded to all kinds of needs from picking up shopping and prescriptions, to gardening, accessing support grants, taking dogs for a walk and even ..... Something!

As well as providing support to households in the Knaresborough area, Connectors have also become part of the solution, providing much needed coordination and support in the roll out of the Covid-19 vaccination and boosters! Coordinated by Knaresborough Rotary's very own Hazel Haas MBE we have seen over 100 Connectors help out and support over 24,000 vaccinations and boosters to local people

During the pandemic Connectors, particularly our good friends from the Knaresborough Lions have been regularly ringing round those in our community who have been most isolated. For some, That phone call has been the only time they have been in contact with someone for weeks at a time 

 

“The people in the Knaresborough community, led by the Knaresborough Connectors, have done a tremendous job, providing meals on wheels and all sorts of services. It is really quite humbling to see the effort that has gone in to ensure that people are supported.”

Major Christine Willoughby - Knaresborough Post (March 2021)
