COVID-19 Support

Dollar Community Development Trust has been supporting the efforts of the Coronavirus Dollar Support Service response group. We have set up a Community Larder in the Hive for those who have been adversely affected by the Coronavirus outbreak. If you or someone you know needs to use the Food Larder please contact: 07496 089221

We have also set up Stay Connected! our weekly programme of FREE online sessions – including Yoga, Pilates, Keep Fit, Singing, Gardening and lunch club all run using Zoom, the popular free video-conferencing app. For more information click here.

If you would like to donate to the Community Larder there are 3 options:

  • Leave your donation in the permanent ‘Donation Point’ in the Dollar Co-op
  • You can drop off donations at the Hive between 10am and 11am, Monday to Friday (starting Monday 30th March)
  • You can make a financial donation directly to the Trust and we will use the money to stock up the larder – our bank details are: Bank name: Royal Bank of Scotland | sort code: 83-16-16 | account number: 00214914 | Account name: Dollar Community Development Trust. When making a donation please use reference: Com. Larder. Thank you!
  • ONE MORE THING BEFORE YOU GO!! Did you know if you are a UK taxpayer you can boost your donation by 25p of Gift Aid for every £1 you donate? (this meas if you donate £50 it could be worth £62.50 to the Trust) the Trust can reclaim Gift Aid from the tax you pay for the current tax year. But we need a few details from you to do so – if you are a UK tax payer please click here to download our Gift Aid form and return it to rebecca.dcdt@gmail.com

If you have any questions or would like to volunteer with us, please contact our Development Officer Rebecca McFarlane on rebecca.dcdt@gmail.com or 07563 405939

The Dollar Action Group can help you with: Shopping, Precriptions, Hearing Aid Batteries and a friendly person to speak to.
