HECK! Food, based in Bedale, Yorkshire, is offering delivery of home essentials to help people who are self-isolating, vulnerable or unable to get out during these uncertain times.
Becky Goodall, Head of Marketing and Operations at HECK!, commented: “We are based in a very rural area and there are a lot of vulnerable and isolated people in our immediate vicinity. Each month for a couple of years now, we have been hosting OAP lunches, to give some company to people who are isolated. We’ve had to stop these for the moment, but we are now doing free home deliveries of essentials to Wath, Kirklington and Pickhill, to make sure our community knows we are still thinking of them and trying to help.”
HECK! will be distributing leaflets around the surrounding villages today and asking people to contact them with their requests.
Becky continues: “We are very much a family and friends based business and a lot of relatives live locally, so we want to be able to help out and put something back.”
#howcanihelp is trending on social media and HECK! are urging customers to do their best to help vulnerable and isolated people around them.
