A
£1,000 donation from Corve Street-based mfg Solicitors is helping Hands
Together Ludlow to continue to provide a wide range of essential services to
people who are shielding or self-isolating during the crisis.

Hands
Together Ludlow are part of a coalition of support to the community known as
Pulling Together Ludlow set up in March as the country was put under lockdown. It
has gone onto provide a variety of services such as prescription delivery, food
shopping, delivery of paid goods, hot meals, dog walking and telephone
befriending services.

The
initiative has also brought together various organisations in Ludlow including
GP services and charities to provide a joined-up community response to the
pandemic, while furloughed workers have been encouraged to get involved and
give their time to help others in need.

Janna
Vigar, partner at mfg Solicitors and also a trustee of Hands Together Ludlow,
said: “At present it’s no secret that charities across the country find
themselves under increasing pressure due to so many vital causes needing
funding to survive.

“We
are proud to be able to do our bit right on our doorstep by supporting an innovative
local charity helping the most vulnerable members of Ludlow’s community to stay
safe.”

Sue
Chantler, chair of trustees for Hands Together Ludlow, added: “Before this
dreadful pandemic we were providing a huge range of community services,
including lunches and bereavement groups that brought people together face to
face for a helping hand.

“That
all had to be put on hold as we were told to stay at home, but people still
needed our help. We’re very proud of how quickly we adapted and changed our
entire way of working and we are very grateful to mfg Solicitors for their
generous support.”
