Chorlton Bike Deliveries is a new, innovative, free, resident-led scheme to support our community as we respond to the threat of the Covid-19 virus, primarily offering delivery of food to our neighbours who find it hard to get to the shop.
Launched on Earth Day on April 22nd it is an entirely voluntary organisation based on cooperative values. It is affiliated to Walk Ride Greater Manchester, a group campaigning for safer streets and cleaner air. As such the organisation is here for the long term, seeking to encourage residents to forsake their cars when shopping locally.

Our volunteer cyclists took shopping to 19 households where residents find it difficult to get out themselves, did 3 pick-ups of locally sewn scrubs for use by hospital staff, delivered 58 ready made meals to people needing them, saved supermarket food from wastage by taking it to a local food bank. More than 40 miles were clocked up so that means 40 miles-worth fewer cars on our roads!
We'd love to discuss this proposal with anyone keen to know more or support us in any way.

Chorlton and District Coops is organised by a group of concerned members of the Co-op. We aim to promote collaboration between members, Co-op stores and other cooperatives in Chorlton.
