Galway County Council and PPN launch #InthisTogether Booklet with competitions
For most of us, getting out and about is an essential part of our daily or weekly routine, however, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, many older or vulnerable individuals have had to cocoon at home, and have had to rely on the many wonderful volunteers in their communities to bring them shopping and other essential items.
Almost 2,000 individuals have signed up to volunteer in the County during this time, either with their local Clubs or as individuals, which is evidence of the truly amazing community spirit we are lucky to have in our County.
Galway County Council, in partnership with our colleagues in other public services and the community & voluntary sector on the Community Response Forum, have been working hard to keep everyone safe and supported during this time. In recognition of the fact that many people have been at home for much longer periods of time than they would normally, we have put together this Booklet in partnership with our Age Friendly Programme and Healthy Ireland Programme, as a source of information, advice and entertainment!
It is aimed at all who have been cocooning, or caring for those cocooning, and as a celebration of the togetherness which has been shown by all
in preventing the spread of Covid-19. We are aware that not everyone has access to computers or technology and have therefore made the booklet available in hard copy and soft copy.
We hope you will find the information and links to other service useful and that you enjoy the various feel-good activities, information, challenges and quizzes which we have designed to be as much about our beautiful County as possible.
Please remember to enter our Competitions by 30th June and you could win prizes or become part of the County’s collective memories of this unique time in our history.
