A Volunteer Shopping Escort assists elderly clients with their grocery shopping when they no longer drive or are able to go shopping by themselves.

Taking place on a fortnightly basis, the Shopper goes to the home of a client they are matched with, takes them to the shops/supermarket of their choice and helps them to do their grocery shopping and returns them home again once finished.

During this current time shopping may also be done by list. In this instance the shopper would do the shopping on behalf of the client, after collecting their list and returning the groceries back to them once completed.

So if you enjoy shopping and wish to help a member of your local community, please apply.
