Our street volunteers carry out general errands for residents living nearby. These might include:
Picking up shopping that the resident has already paid for from local shops such as the post office or Gatcombe Farm.
Picking up small local purchases that haven’t already been paid for, such as a loaf of bread, some milk or some stamps. We ask you to keep to a limit of £5 on any cash purchases and never to take a resident’s ATM card or contactless payment card.
Volunteers can have a friendly chat at the doorstep (from a suitable distance!) but should never go into a resident’s home.
