Emergency Coronavirus Appeal

In March, Ruils set up 2 new services supporting vulnerable local people during the pandemic, many of whom are shielding - a shopping and prescription delivery service, and a telephone befriending service.

Our volunteers have delivered more than 1,000 food parcels/prescriptions to local people and families unable to get to the shops themselves. Our volunteer befrienders have made over 1,500 phone calls to isolated people for a friendly chat and to offer help.

It is clear that the changes to our lives will last beyond 12 weeks. At the same time charities, including Ruils, are facing a significant funding gap. We urgently need your help.

Can you support Ruils with a regular gift, and enable us to help local people for as long as they need us?
