Light Shopping - Havant area

Do you have a few hours to spare on a weekly basis?

Do you want to support Older People in your local community?

If so, this is the role for you!

Our Volunteer Shopping volunteers help improve the quality of life for older people who are not able to shop for themselves and who may also be isolated and lonely. Our volunteers are introduced to a member with the purpose providing them with a shopping service and socially distanced brief chat when the items are delivered.

A supermarket voucher will be provided for you to pay for the items and you will deliver the groceries on the doorstep, collecting a cheque in a sealed envelope at the same time.
