cls-shopping-club-leafletFood shopping may be as simple as jumping in your car and heading to the local supermarket, but for some people over 50, this couldn’t be further from the truth. If you live in the Chester-Le-Street area and struggle with your shopping you may benefit from joining our shopping club. The shopping club works by picking people up from their door and travelling to supermarkets in Chester-Le-Street or the Arnison Centre Durham or The Galleries Washington for £5 per person, per trip on a fortnightly basis. A volunteer can be on hand to help around the store, offer assistance with heavier items as well as being a friendly face to those older people who may need it. Click here to download the leaflet
