OLDER, disabled and vulnerable folk in Redditch have issued a plea to people not to take supermarket delivery slots unless they really need them after finding themselves isolated and with no way of getting any groceries.
And they have pleaded with the supermarkets to do more to help those who need it most.
Three neighbours from Redditch, aged 68, 85 and 101, who contacted the Standard said their regular weekly delivery from Tesco had failed to turn up.
“We haven’t been able to get eggs for three weeks now,” one said.
“In these times when the vulnerable are being urged to have their shopping delivered isn’t this selfish?”
When contacted, all of the major supermarkets said they were looking to increase their delivery runs and were asking those who could safely get to a store to go there instead of shopping online.
