With the COVID-19 pandemic spreading very fast which has caused everyone to “stay at home,” the faith in an elderly person was restored by MP Sir Charles Walker act of kindness after he went out of his way to deliver groceries to an elderly resident.
Mr Ian Mylam posted a picture on Facebook of shopping bags which was delivered by Sir Charles Walker to Ian’s father who is under self-isolation.
The elderly man had a difficult time finding a delivery slot to get groceries, so he followed his son’s advice and emailed his local MP, to inform him about this problem faced by many other elderly residents.
He never thought that the Conservative politician will take it upon himself to deliver the groceries.
The post has been shared over a thousand times on Facebook.
Mr Mylam wrote that like a lot of elderly people in the UK his father has been advised to stay inside for his own safety and that he should rather order his groceries online.
He added that his father tried many times from different online supermarkets to order online groceries but there were no slots available for the next two weeks.
He made a suggestion to his father to email the local member of parliament to inform him about the situation that many elderly people might be facing too.
Mr Mylam said that the cost of the groceries was split between Sir Charles as well as the local community.
Lastly, he said that on behalf of his father, he wants to thank Sir Charles Walker, he called the MP “one knight of the realm who was clearly wearing his shining armour today.”
