Hi, I'm on here to see if theres anyone who can help us, I am a single mother of 2 young disabled children and I am showing symptoms of the corona virus. I have no access to food and have tried to do an online shop but there are no delivery slots available. Is there anyone willing to pick food up for us? My sister is also staying with us and is showing similar symptoms - she is 8 months pregnant. We cant find any nappies and shes due to give birth soon. If anyone has any spare nappies or formula please could we take them off your hands? We are willing to pay for food and nappies. We are located in east dulwich.

Thank you so much

Hi Fleur,

I got a flyer through the door the other day from volunteers offering to help. Iíll follow up with a PM with their phone numbers - wasnít sure whether they wanted their numbers posted on EDF.

Fleur, there is an email address on the attachment MrsD posted, if you haven't managed to get help yet, you could try that?

Good luck!

Hi Fleur, follow all the advice above and hopefully you can tap into a local volunteer network. If not, come back to the forum. Someone will step up to help you.

Mrs D's advise would be the best, but I'm happy to help too.

All the best

Hi Fleur

We use Kendamil milk for our 3 month baby. Itís produced in the U.K. which means if you set up a subscription they will deliver milk to your door each month. Itís £9 a tin which we found fed our baby as a newborn for c.10 days (it know lasts 7 days as sheís eating more). Itís organic and she got constipated on other milks. The link is here: www.kendamil.com.

Many thanks

Ps we have one unused tin of Aptamil for new borns which I can deliver to you ? (Our baby ended up preferring kendamil as per my earlier post).

Also, if your sister is having a little girl, I have a bag of freshly washed 0-3 months girls clothes (body suits, sleep suits etc). Very good condition. I can drop these round too.

Let me know via PM if any of these would be any help to you.

Many thanks
