If you are self-isolating or having problems getting out to do shopping then why not use the DART Shopping service ?
DART Volunteers will go to the supermarket with your shopping list and deliver to your door.
Payment can be made electronically once the shopping is delivered via BACS (online banking).
“IOU” notes, to be settled later can be raised as required (supported by Dirleton Village Association).
Here’s how it works :
- Phone your area coordinator (click button below) giving your name, address and telephone number and details of the shopping required.
- If you have a Smartphone, then fill out your details on the shopping form then take a photo of the form. Once you have a nice clear photo then either email or send via text to your area coordinator
Volunteers will do shopping on two days – Monday and Friday – Monday and Friday.
There is no longer a minimum spend requirement.
