HOPE and Cope Ladies Support Group has created a new way to offer support with the use of lanyards.

The lanyard will be purple with a colourful dove symbol to show other members of the public that they are fearful of going out during the pandemic.

People are asked to give wearers distance whilst treating them with patience and kindness.

Shops and businesses in Millom will be made aware.

To request a free lanyard, sponsored by the Hope and Cope Ladies Support Group, contact Jenny Brumby on Facebook.
