As you will be aware, the regional public transport network is a critical lifeline for many, enabling access to employment, education, community, accommodation, and health/medical appointments.
They have been tasked to deliver a 4-week volunteer project at Cambridge, Diss and Ely Train Stations. Volunteers have been identified as a welcoming, reassuring face, able to assist commuters to make a safe journey and advise members of the public to comply with the safe travel measures in place.
Each of these stations needs volunteers who can commit around 3/4 hours per week (for 4 weeks), or more hours per week if they are able too, with each of them being AM timeslots Monday to Friday (7am - 11am).
Aattached is a flyer about the project (it says Ely - but same flyer for Diss and Cambridge essentially) you are most welcome to pass on my contact details below to any interested parties so that they can reach out directly.
We have a deadline to complete this project by the 13th November, and the success of regional engagement is also being a considered factor in the likelihood and necessities for a 2nd lockdown of the region (which we are actively trying to avoid).
