The Upperton Community really pulled together to help those most at risk through this crisis. Community groups, churches and so many good neighbours have stepped up to help others and continue to do so.
Your Upperton Lib Dem Councillors joined the Eastbourne Together Community Call Centre and contacted 500 households across Upperton offering them help from the team or signposting them to the support they needed.
Lib Dem County Councillor Pat Rodohan said " This has been a sad time and the most difficult challenge in my lifetime. The Community response has been amazing. Community groups, churches, individuals have worked so hard to give support to vulnerable residents and continue to do so".
Josh Babarinde, who co-ordinated the Community Call Centre said "Seeing our community step up to support the most vulnerable is nothing short of inspiring. The local Lib Dems are proud to have been able to play our part to support thousands of elderly residents via telephone calls and more during this challenging time."
