Demo vehicles from a car dealership are being put to good use transporting north Norfolk residents to their Covid jab appointments, as well as delivering food parcels so people can avoid the supermarket during the lockdown. 

Crayford and Abbs, which has branches in  Bodham and Mundesley, has offered the use of its demo vehicles as well as staff as volunteers to Cromer Cares, which is co-ordinating the Covid response in the area, as well as the town's food bank, to transport the elderly and help get food to people who need it. 

Kevin Abbs, managing director, said: "With the restrictions on showrooms and maximising flexi-furlough my colleagues have volunteered their time and both Nissan and MG offering the use of their demos.

"It would appear there is quite a shortfall of transport available. We had an immediate response from Cromer and have several cases to take this week already alongside a great response from the food bank."

Cromer and District Food Bank can be found online at www.trusselltrust.org/get-help/find-a-foodbank/cromerdistrict. Visit www.facebook.com/CromerCares to find requests and offers to help in the town, or call them on 01263 512254.
