If anyone needs help during this trying time, with anything from groceries to a bit of support I would like to think that they would be able to call on anyone of us on this group for this help. I know that it is not easy for any of us to admit that we need help, but during this time I think we need to make acceptions to our normal way of thinking. I will be the first to be available to help, if I can to anyone in the area that needs a hand. Hopefully others will follow. My email is jackidb123@gmail.com / 0210551566 (leave a msg if I dont answer)
