Shopping Service

Shopping service helping older people

What does it do?

We provide a shopping service for anyone over the age of 55 who lives in the Norwich area

We run a weekly, fortnightly or monthly shopping service, depending on which part of Norwich you live.

You are collected at around 9am and should arrive back home by 12.30.The main supermarkets that we use are Tesco’s on Ipswich Road and Tesco’s in Sprowston

We use a minibus and driver provided by a local company and we are fortunate enough to have two volunteers form Age UK to greet you at the supermarket, they will help you off the bus and help you back on with your shopping on your return home.  You will not have to carry any shopping yourself as the driver also takes your shopping into your home for you.

You do need to be able bodied as unfortunately there is no space on the minibus for walking frames etc.
