Description

Act Now is looking for volunteers to 'Share & Shop'!

Share & Shop is looking to build on the brilliant work of so many Mid Argyll residents who collected (and continue to collect) shopping, prescriptions, and other items by car during the Covid 19 crisis.

Volunteers are needed to ensure this hugely important work continues. The benefits to the community are clear. Act Now, however, also wishes to see the continued decrease in car use with one car journey meeting the needs of two, or more, households. This saves money and lowers harmful emissions leading to climate change.

Volunteers could be coordinators, individuals with an understanding of their community who can arrange car journeys that make the most of the trip. Or, volunteers could be using their own car to make that weekly trip to the shops, collecting for neighbours to prevent unnecessary journeys.

No experience is necessary. If you already help, or want to help, you are perfectly placed to make a real difference.
