Volunteers in a Suffolk market town have been pulling together to help others in the wake of the coronavirus.
People living in Woodbridge have quickly banded together to help look after more vulnerable residents.
The town have set up an Emergency Response Group which will be bringing volunteers to help carry out a range of tasks including picking up shopping, sending post or simply being at the end of a phone.
One of the volunteers’ first tasks has been posting leaflets out to let people know what they are able to offer.
Woodbridge Mayor Patrick Gillard has been delighted with the response to the scheme.
