Doorstep deliveries

People were quick to spring into action when coronavirus hit and continue to work tirelessly, many of them behind the scenes, all these weeks later.

So much work is carried out by so many groups and charities that we could never publish coverage of it all and we may run the risk of forgetting all the good that is still being done.

As most people settle into the new normal, countless volunteers are still carrying out essential work enabling those who need to stay at home to do so.

This week, Kintyre Food Bank is reminding people in need that it is there to help – it has been supplying food and essentials throughout lockdown to an unprecedented number of people who have been economically affected by the pandemic.

The food bank is even offering to deliver to those who are unable to leave their homes – something which many local groups and businesses are also offering to do.

Until a couple of months ago, many people would leave their home every time they needed anything, but now – thanks to doorstep deliveries of supermarket shopping, fresh fish, bakery and dairy items, and even plants – it is possible for many of us to remain at home most of the time.

We owe a big thank you to both the volunteers and businesses that are looking out for everyone in the community.
