CTSI UPDATE – March 25th 2020
We’d like to start today’s update by thanking every single person who has come forward to volunteer in recent weeks, and even in the last 72 hours. Hundreds of people in Clacks have now registered to volunteer in any way they can to support people in their community and to make sure that no one gets forgotten about during this difficult time. Your help is truly appreciated!
