Support groups merge

The phone support line that was set up by a group of volunteers at the start of the first lockdown in March is to be merged with the Thame Good Neighbour Scheme.

The Blue Hearts helpline phone number, 0330 022 9787, will remain the same.

People who know anyone who needs help with shopping, prescription collection or who would benefit from a phone call for a chat or a companion with whom to go for a walk, are being encouraged to give them a ring.

Further down the line and when safe to do so the merger group says it will be able to offer other services, such as transport to a GP, hospital appointments and home visits for a chat.
