Last week, I called and texted to the people in my close community, asked them if everything’s ok or if they need anything, if they have sufficient food or need medicine.. Single, married, with or without kids, working, remote working, well offs or financially struggling, young or elderly, please check all of your close circle. The most urgent thing we need now after being safe by staying home is real connections, human connections, being social (virtually), checking each other, reminding those somebody cares about them. This is important for a healthy community.🙏
So please please please check each other. Don’t let anyone feel lonely in this process. Keep connecting with people while at home, it will change your energy and help you too as much as help them! We are in this together and our mental health as important as our physical health. And in the time of social distancing, most of us are craving to be asked, be checked, or even be shared silly things. Share what you’ve eaten at lunch, what you’re watching on Netflix, what annoyed you that day or what cheered you, all that simple daily talk is a basic need that helps getting away from that trapped feeling, just speak to someone daily and tune your social skills, human interaction..
I’ll do this regularly, I’ll check my close community, and I think everyone who has time should do that too. It’s a kind of community service but a more sincere one. Give it a try, you will feel better and help each other! … See MoreSee Less
With the community fighting spirit stronger than ever, we will beat this Coronavirus together 👩🏽⚕️👨🏽⚕️❌🦠
Just come back from a long 12 hr shift and to see this in my post box, just lifted my spirits like you would not believe. What a true affirmation of how one person’s love and initiative can make such a difference during tough times 🙏🏽
For those of you who don’t know, I hadn’t ever met @beena.hirani before. She saw my fundraising efforts on social media and lovingly reached out to help. She said her beautiful 8 year old daughter came up with the idea of putting her passion for making jewellery into helping us raise money.
The blue and pink beads on my bracelet and key ring to match my scrubs, with the little details are just unbelievably thoughtful. I will wear the bracelet on my ankle so I don’t have to take it off for work and I will see the key ring when I drive into work, keeping her and her mum in my heart always 💕
Eesha has been working tirelessly around her home schooling to create hundreds of bespoke gifts over the 2 weeks and has raised close to £1000 all on her own! The innovation and creativity she has put into helping me fundraise, is truly inspirational 🌈
Thank you from my heart to everyone who has supported little beautiful Eesha and mummy Beena. I m sure there are many kind souls behind the scene and I send you all huge love and hugs 🤗
Please feel free to DM me or @beena.hirani to order your bespoke key ring or bracelet for a loved one and I m sure Eesha will be more than happy to make it.
All our efforts go into ensuring as many people as possible across the UK, have the correct PPE and essential foods to continue their battle against the virus.
As the number of people who are affected thankfully steadily reduces, there are still some very highly affected areas and people who really rely on our help and support. Therefore I will continue to try my best after my NHS shifts, to ensure I bring the right PPE and a happy tummy to as many NHS AND KEY WORKERS as possible.
This is just absolutely incredible, Eesha my little shining star, I am sure you will reach £1000 🌟🥰❤️
Lots of love and healthy hugs,

Hello, I realise this is probably a big ask in the current situation we all find ourselves in. But does anyone have a P3 mask I could borrow for a day? Would be happy to donate to a charity of your choice in exchange.

Mum has managed to use google to find her phones last place and it’s a nearby station so we’re really hoping someone found it and handed in there. She’s filled in an online form and now she just has to wait for them to contact her.
Thank you so much everyone for all your help and advice!
I’m really hopeful now that it will be in the lost property at the station, I’ll update again if she gets it back!
You are all so kind! I can’t thank you all enough!
PLEASE HELP! My Mum has lost her phone in Morden Hall park.
She has just lost her partner of 30 years and it has photos etc on it.
She has had such a terrible few months and this was her chance to get out and meet a friend (socially distancing) I’m just so sad for her. If anyone finds it and can message me we’d be so grateful.
It’s a Samsung Galaxy with a black case. … See MoreSee Less
