Donate to help us help more Hemingford residents stay in touch with their families

Many elderly and vulnerable people in our villages are facing the prospect of being isolated for months on end from seeing friends and family.

They are being cared for by volunteers doing shopping and collecting medicines.

But loneliness and isolation has meant many are deprived of human contact, and this is making some feel quite sad.

Hemingford Hub wants to buy some iPad kit to bring family video conferencing to their doors. They don't need to have Wifi or broadband at home. This kit works through having built-in SIM cards to enable video calls. Once our elderly experience this contact with far-flung family, they want to keep that contact going. So we need more than one donated iPad!

Please give what you can. £1500 covers the cost of an iPad, SIM card and folding table and chair for the 'at risk' person to comfortably enjoy their chat from their own front door. (We set up the iPad, table and chair, wipe the screen and furniture with anti-bac, and invite the person to sit and chat... without having to touch any buttons.)

Your donations are much appreciated.

Ninety four year-old Eva was the first resident to use our 'mobile videoconferencing' service to see her sons and grandchildren who live in Suffolk.

Eva was thrilled by her first Zoom call. Click here to read more about her experience, which was featured in The Hunts Post.



 What has become the Hemingford Hub was first proposed in 2017 as a test case for how lonely or isolated people in the village could be supported by the community care sector and NHS. The Hub was recognised as a community group and received funding in November 2019. Just as the team was preparing to launch the Hub, Covid-19 happened..
