We have had a call from the local authority hub who are co-ordinating
groups like us across the East Riding to help with the bigger picture.
They are very happy with what we are doing and would like us to carry
on as we are BUT the upshot of the conversation is that there is likely
to be an increase in demand for help in the next few weeks - and we have
been asked if we can mobilise some of our volunteers to help out.
Obviously we agreed, and we'd like to get your buy-in to us sharing our volunteer database with them when the time comes.
Rather than ask every registered volunteersindividually, can we ask that, if anyone feels
unable/unwilling to get a call from the Hub to please let us know by
TEXTING YOUR NAME AND THE WORDS 'OPT OUT' to 07801 445618 and we'll
make sure we don't pass on your details,
We will treat any messages in the strictest confidence.
We will filter the names we send by the preferences that you gave us
when filling out the volunteer forms (just to make sure you don't get
asked to drive a ten ton truck if you volunteered to walk someone's dog!)
This is the only data (alongside name, address and phone number ) that we will be sharing.
We will try and keep any of our volunteers who are active at the moment in place, so we can continue doing what we are doing.
