Sainsbury’s announces Volunteer Shopping Card to help feed the nation

Available from today, Sainsbury’s has launched Volunteer Shopping Cards – enabling others to shop on behalf of the elderly, disabled and vulnerable among other customers who can’t shop for themselves

As part of its ongoing pledge to help feed the nation and keep customers and colleagues safe, Sainsbury’s is this week launching Volunteer Shopping Cards to make it easier for customers to shop for others.

Available from 20 April 2020, Volunteer Shopping Cards can be purchased online (www.sainsburysgiftcard.co.uk), enabling friends and helpers to shop on behalf of the elderly, disabled and vulnerable together with other customers who may not be able to shop for themselves.

Customers can visit the dedicated webpage and select how much they’d like to spend on their weekly shop, between £5 – £250. The E-Gift Card will then be emailed directly to the person shopping on their behalf, which can then be redeemed at checkout in store.

Mike Coupe, Chief Executive Officer at Sainsbury’s, said:
 “During this challenging time, it’s more important than ever that we come together as a community. That includes supporting those who are kindly helping others to get the essential items they need. Our Volunteer Shopping Card will make it as easy as possible for our customers to do so.”
