At the beginning of the lockdown, the Liberal Democrats launched the #EBtogether Community Call Centre - our telephone drive to call vulnerable Eastbournians and signpost them to the support they need.
Thanks to the passion, commitment and determination of our team of 40+ volunteers, we hit our target of contacting 5,000 residents across town!
We were joined by leading Lib Dem MP and leadership candidate Layla Moran, who Zoomed down from Westminster to thank the team (each and every volunteer by name!) for these efforts.
Layla said: "Thank you to the Eastbourne Liberal Democrats for all your hard work! You are absolutely demonstrating best practice. It is incredible!"
#EBtogether Co-ordinator Josh Babarinde said: "Our fantastic volunteers have been calling residents day-in, day-out since the start of lockdown, connecting them with support getting groceries, medication and more. Thank you to each and every one of them. I'm so proud that what we've achieved as a team - and it's fantastic to be able to share news of our work with Layla Moran MP."
