Today’s lockdown story comes from Beth Whitaker, a current Public Health and Community Wellbeing student at the University of Bradford. Here she shares how she’s making a positive difference in her community in a way you might not have considered…
As soon as it was obvious that a lockdown was on the way, I applied for a paper round. I knew that I would hate to be stuck inside all day every day and the money would help too.
I also applied for loads of supermarket work when they were looking for temp staff because I wanted to be able to help out.
Having a paper round has been absolutely wonderful. Having a routine that means getting up and out of the house every morning has been a Godsend, I’ve got lots of lovely people to wave to every day which seems like such a little communication but it means so much, I love looking at all the rainbows in everyone’s windows and one lady has said that me bringing the paper round each day is keeping her going.
