Coronavirus: New shopping service for vulnerable in Harrogate

Coronavirus: New shopping service for vulnerable in Harrogate

Published by The Stray FM News Team at 6:45am 27th March 2020.

A new click and collect shopping service is opening at The Cuttings - to support the most vulnerable during the coronavirus pandemic. 

  • A new shopping service is starting at The Cuttings in Harrogate.  
  • It's run by Harrogate Neighbours and food service company Turner Price.
  • The twice a week service will provide essential food items to people who can't get to a supermarket. 

It's hoped the service, run by Harrogate Neighbours and food service company Turner Price, will take the pressure off supermarkets and key workers.  

The twice a week service will provide essential food items like chilled goods, frozen food and fruit and vegetables to those who cannot get to a supermarket.  

The on-site service will also help limit the spread of COVD-19 as Harrogate Neighbours staff and care workers will not need to visit supermarkets where they risk being infected.

Sue Cawthray, CEO of Harrogate Neighbours, said:

“As care professionals we have a responsibility to do everything we can to protect our tenants, and in times like this, our staff and carers who without we would not be able to provide the level of care we pride ourselves on.

"We have a long-standing relationship with Turner Price and we are extremely grateful for their support in these uncertain times. This service will have a hugely positive impact on so many people as it will take the pressure off those most vulnerable.”

Jason Watkins, Regional Sales Manager at Turner Price said:

“So many people have been affected by the COVID-19 outbreak and no-one could have predicted the widespread panic and stockpiling being reported in supermarkets.

"Harrogate Neighbours is a long-standing client of ours and as the most vulnerable we are very keen to do what we can to help. We’ve calculated that we have enough supplies to last for 12 months, so we are confident that we can support the organisation and the wider community through these uncertain and testing times.”
