Description

Working as part of a team of shoppers you will take one of our customer’s orders and go around the store gathering the required items. You will then pack the groceries into shop boxes and help put them through the checkout. Once all the orders are made up we pay the balance of the grocery bill and help the delivery people load the boxes onto the vans ready for delivery.

8.30 am til approx. 12 Noon Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.

Organisation aims and objectives

Our aim is to support older people to live independently at home. Our preventative services address the difficulty older people face getting their weekly grocery shopping, doing jobs around the house and the growing isolation that comes with failing health. We also aim to provide a wide range of supported volunteering opportunities for people of all ages and ability and these include shopper, driver, delivery assistant and office assistant.
