Simon’s Part in Community Work is Featured in the Local Press

D2 Rail’s Planning Director, Simon Blair, has been helping his local Covid-19 Mutual Aid community in Marple, which has a high population of people aged 70 and over, by providing technical support to help in the efficient management of the group.

The amazing work of the 130 local volunteers, who are providing support to individuals self-isolating, was featured in the Spring Edition of Marple Review.

This united and highly coordinated team has been making deliveries of essential items, such as food and medical supplies, with the necessary social distancing enforcements. To date, this incredible army of volunteers have made over 320 deliveries.

They have also been providing a buddying service, where individuals are paired up and provide other support, whether it be talking over the phone, dog walking (whilst complying with government guidance on controlling the spread of Covid-19) and any other general help and support.

Everybody at D2 Rail is incredibly proud of Simon. His commitment to this fantastic local project, is a great example of a community supporting each other during these challenging and stressful times.
