Cambridge Rugby Club are offering to help the community during the current coronvirus pandemic.

The club's community team has proposed a collection and delivery service for those self-isolating.

It could be help getting shopping or medicine, or even walking the dog. They have taken advice from relevant health professionals to make sure the appropriate distancing and cleanliness steps are taken.

"If we can help in any way, shape or form, we're keen to do so," said Cambridge's head of community Ben Penfold.

"We've got the ability, we've got a company van so therefore we can pick up stuff that people can't if they're self-isolating

"We went out this morning as we've already had three or four people get in contact. We're offering a free delivery service.

"We're trying to keep it as local as possible, but to get out there to bring back a bit of community which I know a lot of people are doing at the minute. We're just trying to promote it through the rugby club and the resources that we've got."

Cambridge's community team are also promoting skills challenges on social media that youngsters are able to do in their garden.

"We will be doing lots of skills videos throughout the next week or so," said Penfold.
