Voucher scheme helps people isolating

20 Voucher Web Slider

We're now selling £20 vouchers over the phone - they can be used by volunteers, friends or family to pay for the shopping of those who are isolating.

The vouchers are ordered over the phone. They are then sent out by recorded first class post and delivered to a chosen address. They can then be used as payment in Lincolnshire Co-op food stores. 

So, if someone's isolating and needs essentials picked up, they can buy a voucher to give or send to a friend, family member or volunteer to spend on shopping on their behalf.

It saves people having to handover a bank card to someone else or worry about how much cash they have.

It's part of Lincolnshire Co-op's programme of community support during the Coronavirus outbreak - which includes pairing up food stores with voluntary groups in the area. Find out more here.

Community Manager Sam Turner said: "Many of the community groups we’re working with have highlighted the issue of payment. Many people, particularly older people, are running out of cash and understandably, don't want to handover their bank cards.

"Having a simple central phone order point makes the scheme accessible to all - especially if someone isn't online - and it also ensures that our food stores don't have extra workload at this extremely busy time."

The vouchers can be spent on any products, with no restrictions, and change will be given.

To buy vouchers, please call Lincolnshire Co-op's Community Team on 01522 544 632, from Monday to Friday 9am – 3pm.
