Yes we have no bananas!
1 runner ran to help an isolated older person in York.
- Saturday, 28th of March 2020
I ran to help Ms S by getting some shopping for her at her local shop. In retrospect cycling would have been more useful to her (although not so Goodgym) as I could more easily have gone to a bigger supermarket and got her more of what was on her list, a learning experience for me. After queuing at the local Tesco Express I managed to find most of the list with a few substitutes, minus the bananas and satsumas as fruit was in short supply. Thankfully they had the chocolates she wanted! They had a new generally only one loaf rule but my Goodgym letter allowed me to get her 2 different types as there was 2 of them in the house and I had no idea which to prioritise. I took the shopping back to her after going the wrong way out of the shop and getting briefly lost. I did offer to run to a supermarket and try and get the last few bits but she said they could manage for now. All in all a partially successful mission and will definitely find it easier next time.
