SELFLESS people at a Mauchline farm have vowed to help the fight against coronavirus, as it continues to spread.

Mossgeil Farm, which supplies milk to over 1,000 people across Ayrshire have vowed to tackle the ongoing crisis with a team of drivers ready to respond.

It comes as a total of six of cases were diagnosed in Ayrshire, and the total number of cases across the country have rocketed to 195.

The Mauchline site, have changed their website over the weekend to allow orders to flood in, after they realised it was possible to get supplies out to homes within a 10-mile radius, allowing them to cover Cumnock and Doon Valley.

And thanks to an Ayr bakery, Bhaile Bakery – who put themselves forward to help, they are now able to venture further out to serve from Alloway to Troon in South Ayrshire.

Owner Bryce Cunningham told the Chronicle: “With people being told to self-isolate we thought we could help out and get supplies to them. It’s a worrying situation, I’ve got some older family that I am worried about.

“We are going to sell them our milk and they are going to run things along the coast.

“If things do progress, we can get food and essential items, so people don’t need to go shops.

“We have almost 1,000 customers of our milk, some of these businesses have agreed to supply provisions. It’s a whole load of small businesses of people working together to keep people okay during the quarantine time. We want to make sure the most vulnerable are looked after.”

Drivers of the deliveries will be supplied with face masks and gloves, and they will be worn to the doorstep of customers to reduce the risk of infection.

The farm join a group of kind-hearted businesses and individuals across the length and breadth of Ayrshire who have vowed to support the most vulnerable, and those who need to self-isolate on government advice if they develop symptoms.

From Girvan in South Ayrshire to Stevenston in North, a major effort is underway to ensure people have essential supplies and can cope if whole towns are placed on lockdown as first feared.

It comes as residents who may be struck down with symptoms have been told to self-isolate for a period of seven days.

NHS Ayrshire and Arran are carrying out testing at Crosshouse Hospital.
