A NEW charity is helping the vulnerable and isolated in Blidworth and Ravenshead during the coronavirus crisis. Blidworth On The Move is a voluntary transport service that is helping people attend vital medical appointments — visits they might otherwise have been unable to go to because of fears about using public transport.

Gilly Hagen, chairperson of the Patient Participation Group at the Abbey Medical Group, Blidworth and Ravenshead, and chairperson of Blidworth On The Move, says:

“Over the past month our volunteers have been working hard with those who are particularly vulnerable and isolated.

“I want to send a shout out to everyone across Blidworth, Ravenshead and Rainworth and the surrounding villages.

“Can I ask you to make sure your neighbour, if they are in lockdown, the elderly and anyone who may have a long-term condition knows about the voluntary transport scheme, Blidworth On The Move, which is here to get them to that much-needed appointment at the doctors’ surgery or the local hospital.
