Bringing neighbours together
Since the start of lockdown My neighbours and I have started up a WhatsApp group to stay in touch and help those who are isolating alone feel part of a community. We started by sending the updates and funny videos but the app has come into it's own with our Tesco shop. We share the times of our slots and offer to add items for neighbours that can't get out or who are looking for just a few items or are unable to secure a delivery slot. We leave the delivered items on the neighbours doorstep (sometimes along with a treat, as several of us love to bake) and the money appears through our door a few minutes later.I can honestly say that I have spoken more to my neighbours in the past 8 weeks than I have in the 20 years I have lived here. Just one indirect way that Tesco is bringing communities together at this difficult time.A huge thank you to all Tesco staff who are still at work picking, packing and delivering our groceries.
