AN audiologist from Wirral delivered vital food provisions to vulnerable, home-bound customers to support them during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Harry Harrison, currently training at Specsavers in Birkenhead, brought two pints of milk and a loaf of bread to those who most needed help with shopping, during deliveries of hearing aids and glasses.

Harry, who has worked at the Birkenhead branch for two years and previously served in the British Army, said he was committed to making sure vulnerable customers aren't going without basic necessities in this challenging time, and is hoping to carry on this initiative moving forward.

Harry said: "Even before this pandemic, I saw how challenging life could be for my home visit patients.

"When I heard that most have now been advised to not leave the house at all, my first thought was how much more difficult it would be for them to get what they need now.

"Delivering bread and milk is a small gesture but it feels like the least I could do.

"It was such a pleasure to be able to help my customers and make their day a little easier." 

Ken Roberts, store director at Specsavers in Birkenhead said: "Even in times of adversity we all have an opportunity to shine.

"We are incredibly proud of Harry and this small gesture proves that even in hard times we can still do all we can to make sure our customers are cared for."
