Who do we help?
Here's a video of an elderly couple, Myrna and Trevor, telling us their story of how they found a volunteer to help them with their grocery shopping. CoronaBuddy has managed to help them, and many like them, so far.

Sally (50-69)
Grocery shopping
"We are a supported living service for older ladies with learning disabilities and mental health issues. Our ladies have been shielding for the duration of the pandemic, and we are just reaching a stage where they are being supported to go outside. At the moment, we require some help with our weekly shops for our 6 ladies so that we can keep taking our ladies out to reduce isolation (each has a separate shopping list, so we wouldn't expect a volunteer to help us with all 6 ladies). If you are able to help with any of our weekly shops, we'd be so appreciative. Due to the nature of the ladies' finances, we would ask if you could please pick up the money and shopping list from the scheme, as we are unable to purchase online due to lack of cash cards (we usually pay in cash for each lady we support).
