Ways you can help your community

Inspiring story

Delivering food with a smile

Our community has a lot of people who are classed as vulnerable during this challenging time. Because of this we’ve made it our goal to help as many vulnerable people in our community by promoting our delivery service in store.  

Last updated: 5 May, 2020

It works by colleagues picking stock for a customer order and delivering it. Due to the success of this service we asked for volunteers in the community by using our community board. People had to leave their phone number to volunteer. 

The local rugby club, Burry Port RFC, heard about our call to arms and have supported us with 50 volunteers of their own. With their help, and other volunteers from the community, we’ve been able to deliver to 70 households every week since lockdown begun.
