A KIND Co-op worker is taking time out to help people in need during the coronavirus crisis.

Callum Renfrew, who is a community champion for the firm locally, is helping to deliver vital self-isolation boxes to people across the area who cannot leave their homes.

The 23-year-old has been offering a helping hand as part of his role as customer team leader within the Gourock Shore Street store.

He said: "Within my role I could choose a place in Inverclyde to link up with, and seeing all the amazing work Belville Community Garden are doing I wanted to use my time to assist them.

"As well as going out and making deliveries on their behalf, we also have a collection point for them within the store.

"We raised over £240 from a bucket collection to be spent on supplies for their self-isolation boxes."

The audio tech Glasgow Caledonian University graduate has been working within the Co-op for around three and a half years.

Callum took up a new position as member pioneer with the chain in September.

He said: "It's a role in which we strive to make communities a better place.

"I love doing it as it is great to get out and about and see all the amazing work that is happening across Inverclyde.

"The customers are incredibly supportive and have gone the extra mile to help.

"I've thoroughly enjoyed playing my part in this community effort.

"It's been really great to actually witness the difference places like Belville are making to people's lives."
