Life in Lockdown Book

Can you help? - Make the 'Life in Lockdown' book a reality.  

Derbyshire Voluntary Action are working on an exciting project to publish a book 'Life in Lockdown', documenting the Covid-19 Pandemic as seen through the eyes of Chesterfield and surrounding areas residents, and they need your help in doing this.

As an organisation Derbyshire Voluntary Action proudly supports hundreds of voluntary sector organisations and community groups. They are passionate about championing the work of the community and its volunteers. They are incredibly proud of their strong working relationship with Public Health, NHS, local businesses, and our funders. With this in mind they feel truly able to make a powerful book that represents how the community has responded to the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Submissions are welcome from amateur and professional artists, poets, photographers, creative writers, crafters and song writers. Allow your creativity to record your experience, the ups and the downs, the feelings of isolation and letís not forget the heart-warming stories, the acts of kindness and elements of lockdown we may not want to lose! This book aims to celebrate how we rose to an unprecedented challenge and showed that community spirit is alive and kicking.

The  book will be for sale to the public with the proceeds going towards supporting local charities or the community.
