Covering for the COVID-19 affected

We're a group of non-profit organisations helping to assist all those affected by the COVID-19 virus in Loughborough and surrounding areas.

If you are either elderly or vulnerable and have been told to isolate, please get in touch for support and and assistance with essentials.

If you are a key worker or an NHS staff member, we are here for you, please contact us if you require help.

Wash your hands frequently, especially when you return home
Wear gloves when collecting / delivering, dispose when home
Avoid any contact with your contact, message them instead
Leave donated goods at the door and knock or ring the bell
Don't accept coins or notes, ask them to transfer online
If you show symptoms, stay home! Someone else will cover

Volunteer with the Covid Covered team

We have a team of upward of 30 volunteers covering all of Loughborough and the surrounding areas 7 days a week. This is done on a rota basis, but not everyone is available when a request comes in, especially during work hours between Monday and Friday and so more volunteers are necessary.

We are co-ordinating all requests via our Google form and our WhatsApp group. To become a volunteer, please message [email protected] with your name and contact details and we will be in touch as soon as possible.

Alḥamdulillāh, it appears that the local situation is improving and the number of requests have reduced significantly but there is still a need to help, so please do consider sparing some of your time and bear in mind the words of the beloved Messenger of Allah: "The believer is likable, easily approachable, and pleasant when approaching others. And there is no good in one who is difficult to approach and harsh with others. And the best of people are those who are most beneficial to people." (Reported by Imam Ahmad, al-Bazzaar, Mukhtasar al-Haakim)

Who we are

We are a diverse group of individuals from a number of backgrounds within Loughborough. The LMC is made up of ex-students from Loughborough University who have completed their studies and decided to reside here as well as local families who have lived in Loughborough their entire lives.

We have connections with the council, the local University, the two Mosques in Loughborough and links to a number of private and public figures within the community and further afield.

You can get in touch with us through our email address at [email protected], or contact us directly through any of our Social Media accounts.
