Nikki Andrews and her husband Dean who live in Worcester, realised there was a need to bring people together at this difficult time.

Nikki said: “We are isolating as a family due to my husband having a health condition which makes him high-risk.

“We became aware that many people are currently self isolating or do not wish to leave their homes during the crisis.

“They are struggling to get home delivery from the larger supermarkets.

“We came up with the idea of creating a website which is a directory of local businesses who provide a home delivery service.

“Families are incredibly concerned for relatives who cannot obtain essential items such as food and household items.

“Whilst searching for such businesses we came across many who have had to diversify to stay afloat.”

The service is free to businesses wishing to be listed and it is free for anybody to use.

Nikki added: “This is our contribution to help those people that need deliveries and those businesses that already deliver or have diversified to provide deliveries.

“We would also like to thank those businesses for all that they do along with their valuable staff.”

Companies already signed up include Bottles Worcester - Wine Bar & Merchants, Three Counties Produce, Worcester Garden Centre and H.Dayus Family Butchers.

Worcester city councillor Richard Udall said: “Anything to help traders and residents during this time of crisis is welcomed.

“I thank Nikki and Dean and wish them every success with their not-for-profit web site.”

Anyone can submit a business (as long as they offer a delivery service) as a guest. Businesses can register to either create or claim a listing.
