I’ve seen a lot of local businesses trying to do their bit during the current crisis and lockdown and also try to keep their businesses going with no footfall. I thought it may help our members if we started listing some of those.

These are not recommendations, just list of offers that members have forwarded – they have not been checked. If anyone finds the offers to be no longer running please let me know.

To add something that isn’t on the list please fill in the ‘Leave a reply’ box at the bottom of this article and I’ll add them.

Don’t forget that for people in difficulties there is also our Old Ruts Foodbank we’re running with Dons Local Action Group.

And you can still help Old Ruts by donating to our Emergency Fund or becoming a member.

Here goes!
