The Aylesbury MP spent some time with the Phone and Collect service for vulnerable people in Wendover Budgens.

Over the weekend Rob Butler MP visited Sweeney’s Budgens, Wendover.

He spent the morning volunteering with our Phone & Collect service for Vulnerable People which has been running since the start of lockdown.

He arrived and ‘signed in’ like all colleagues, he undertook a temperature check and smell check and was issued with a face mask and a personal hand sanitiser before starting his shift.

His day began with picking and selecting customers orders previously phoned in.

He was trained to put orders through the tills and phoned customers to take card payment.

At 11am he joined all the volunteer delivery drivers to bring shopping to our many vulnerable customers.

He walked with the team to nearby Vine Trees, knocked on doors and left shopping on door steps, then retreating a safe distance.

Shop owner Dary Sweeney said he was impressed at how “Rob just rolled up his sleeves and got the job done. It was great the for the team to get thanks and recognition for the great job they have been doing”.

Simeon Bowman, Manager of the Phone & Collect team said ‘Rob Butler was a fast learner and would happily give him a full time job!.
