It’s completely flexible and can do done at times and locations that suit you and is managed through the GoodSAM smartphone app.

Called Community Response and Pick Up and Deliver, it was initially launched during the pandemic.

Sam Ward, deputy CEO of Royal Voluntary Service – which delivers the service – said: “Just giving a couple of hours, at a time that suits you, can make a real difference to the health and wellbeing of local people across Bedford.”

The availability of tasks will depend on the demand in each area.

Recruitment is open now but the activities will begin in the coming weeks.
