Here’s a slice of positivity to brighten your day…
In Manchester and the North West, communities are coming together like never before, to provide support, practical help and friendship to those around them - people are pooling resources, and those who are vulnerable, and unable to leave their homes are benefitting from Mutual Aid Groups that are springing up all over the city, in the form of whatsapp groups, and people putting contact information through letter boxes.
This article from Secret Manchester has loads of information on how these grassroots initiatives are bringing people together, and how you can get involved.
