The Kirton Service is calling on sheltered housing residents in need of a shopping buddy to deliver groceries to their door.

The service is running a trial, with buddies picking up and delivering groceries ordered by residents.

Councillor Alan Lafferty, convener for health and social care, said: “This project offers the opportunity for older residents to receive a free delivery service while also giving the ‘shoppers’ a meaningful activity, making a positive contribution to their community.”
