What you need help with
Someone will get back to you as soon as possible. If you do not have the cash, do not worry, our volunteer will be reimbursed by MAYFACS in the interim and we will keep a record of what you owe. We urge you on NO ACCOUNT to give a bank or credit card to a volunteer and ask them to get cash for you. Our volunteers will not take a card from you.
Volunteers will leave items on your doorstep and ring your doorbell and wait, from a distance, until you have collected your items.
To avoid confusion, if you have rung MAYFACS, please do not then duplicate by asking a neighbour.
When requesting groceries please consider making a list which will cover your essentials for the week. This will help to minimise a volunteer going out twice in one week to collect items for you.
If you've requested one of our face masks, information/advice can be found in this pdf
