Balbriggan Tesco helps ease shopping for Isolated and frontline workers.

Balbriggan Social Isolation Volunteers, helping those isolated and vulnerable members of the community in Balbriggan, Balrothery & Balscaden.

One of the biggest tasks the volunteers have been doing for the community is shopping. Whether is the weekly shop, bread and milk or a box of chocolates and wine for an evening in they have 100's of your neighbours and friends ready and willing to go and get these for you. One of the biggest issues our GoFors have when shopping is keeping 2 or 3 peoples shopping separate, another issue is payment some people only have cards and no access to cash also large queues into shops is a hassle.

Balbriggan SIV are delighted Tesco Balbriggan have helped out with the following

  • Balbriggan SIV GoFors now have priority when shopping for Isolated & Vunrable

  • Once the GoFor has completed the shopping Tesco can contact the customer for card payment.

  • Tesco has provided our GoFors with handy segmented bags to help shopping separate.

Balbriggan Social Isolation Volunteers are happy for our super Frontline workers to use these services too. They believe frontline workers, nurses, healthcare workers, paramedics, doctors, Garda all our hard-working frontline heroes should get more time with their families and rest.
