Dorset retailers support community

Dorchester’s Brewery Square retailers are pulling together to give back to their local community during the coronavirus pandemic.

From donating food to supplying personal protective clothing and gloves, many retailers have found a way to do good in a time of uncertainty.  Retailers which have closed doors temporarily are now offering a home delivery service to the local community.

These include Belle Modelle, Copper Street Brewery, Vinyl Van, The Highbrow Clinic and Aesthetics, Stems Florist, Woods Furniture, Seventh Seal and Loco Loves. Delivery information is available on the retailers’ own websites and social media channels.

The team at soft furnishings and interiors retailer Margo and Mya have been utilising their skills to manufacture protective scrubs for those that need them working in the area’s care sector, such as the local hospital and care homes. To date, they have helped to raise more than £900 which will be used to purchase further materials required to make the scrubs.

The Highbrow Clinic, a specialist clinic providing non-surgical aesthetic procedures, has donated its stock of blue vinyl gloves to local GP surgeries and is also raising funds for Dorchester’s local food bank.

Several food outlets including Nando’s, Pizza Express and Wagamama’s donated stock to staff at NHS Dorset County Hospital. Costa Coffee also delivered unused food to Signature House nursing home for its staff.

The team from Hygge Wellness and The Breathing Space are also helping key workers in the local area and offering free online videos to help those in isolation stay well and healthy from home. Alongside this, Anytime Fitness has released free ‘at home’ work-out videos on its social media channels.
