Folkestone Shopmobility and COVID-19

In light of the Prime Ministers and Department of Health, Government's Chief Scientific and Medical Advisers statement made today (16/03/2020) regarding the COVID-19 virus.

The trustees have decided that Shopmobility will remain closed until the LOCK-DOWN is lifted by the government.

(amended 27/04/20)

We also, have a duty of care to our clients and volunteers.

As Shopmobility mainly serves people who would fall into the governments category of vulnerable people we'd like to draw your attention to the advice given by the NHS 

Your help and understanding at this difficult time is greatly appreciated.

Best wishes

Allen Jones Chairman
