If you live rurally, are self isolating due to the Coronavirus, and need shopping, the Community Emergency Response Team based in Penrith are offering a service where they can go to your home, collect your shopping list and money, do your shopping and deliver it back to you.
A spokesperson from CERT said:
"Cost will be £0.45 per mile from your home to the shops and back, this covers our volunteers fuel costs. £5 standard booking fee. This covers calls and administration for CERT. The time away going your shopping is free.
"Alternatively, we can come to your home. Register you for online shopping and delivery via our accounts. We will then only charge the cost of fuel from our volunteers home to yours and their return home and the £5 standard booking fee. You will get all the help and support to order your shopping and a convenient time for delivery.
"If we can help in anyway then please do let us know. Volunteers depending on availability.
"If you would like to volunteer for CERT during this period please do not hesitate to contact Kerryanne Wilde our Director."
