Whats in Wapping

David & Nicole

cup-of-tea

We  are a married couple, around 40 years of age, who have recently taken time out from our careers to get more involved with the local community.

We are especially interested in helping the elderly, people who are impacted by serious illness (including helping carers have break), people impacted by HIV, members or ex-members of the armed forces and their families, and those impacted by social isolation, whatever the cause.

There is no specific ‘thing’ we offer but rather, invite you to let us know how we can help you; no job is too small or trivial – if it’s important to you, it’s important to us.

Nicole is a trained chef and is happy to cook a lunch or dinner for those who might struggle themselves in the kitchen and therefore missing meals. We have a car and can run errands as needed, picking up groceries from the supermarket for example. We can post a letter (or even help write a letter) or pick up prescriptions from the chemist. For those who are feeling alone, we’re happy to just sit down for a nice cup of tea, a piece of cake and a chat. Or if you just need help moving the sofa across the living room, we can do that too.

Three heads are also better than one and a problem shared is a problem halved as they say. We certainly don’t have all the answers but we can listen, help where we can, use the Internet and other resources to maybe find solutions and offer support through difficult periods. We both have extensive experience dealing with large institutions such as banks, credit card companies, utility providers and local councils and can support you through any problems you may be having and help deal with them on your behalf.

We’re flexible on timing and are happy to help any day of the week at a time that suits you. Please contact us if we can help you or if you know someone who might need help – we recognise that many people who might need help do not have Internet access. We’re Wapping based and seek to help people in the local area.

    What a great idea! I’d also be happy to help out where I can, if you’d like another pair of hands.

    I cannot praise this couple enough: they were kind enough to help me with a tedious practical problem and I received a very friendly service with a smile. They are diamonds.
