That this House commends the exemplary and invaluable work of local voluntary groups, organisations, and individuals in facilitating and supporting volunteering efforts across Ayr, Carrick and Cumnock; pays thanks to those offering food delivery services to the most vulnerable in society, those who are volunteering their time to help with local efforts, those offering free or discounted food to key workers, companies, local groups and individuals working to design and make resources such as personal protective equipment and hand sanitiser for those on the front line, those who are offering their time to offer mental health support to reduce the negative effects that social isolation can have, those who have set up Facebook groups, community groups, phone numbers and more to connect with the local community and offer support; and finally commends the efforts of everyone across the constituency who has shown community spirit, kindness, and co-operation during these troubling times.
