Help for those stuck or vulnerable....

Sharon from Bluff Hill

From the MSD website....
Most people can access food and other essential items for themselves and their whanau, either through their own means or through their community providers or support networks like whānau, friends, iwi and neighbours. For some people this is not a possibility and they may need extra help to access the things they need during self-isolation, like food and medicines.
Financial help to people is available through Work and Income. This works well when people have their own way of getting the goods they need.
If you have an urgent need for essential supplies and you don’t have the means or transport to get it yourselves, you can contact your local Civil Defence and Emergency Group (CDEM) for help. This service is intended for people and whanau who don’t have any other options available to them.
The service operates seven days a week from 7am to 7pm.
If you find yourself in this situation, please phone your local Civil Defence and Emergency Management Group.

Urgently seeking temporary home for elderly cat

Urgently looking for a kind person who loves cats to temporarily home Minnie. She is an adorable, affectionate, gentle older cat that likes to sleep all day and stay warm and who would be eternally grateful. She is well behaved and adapts easily but would prefer a dog free home. It could be for 2 or 3 months while owner looks for new home.
Please can you help. 0211076662
