Chris York receives a hamper to thank him for being a coronavirus hero by Southport Hesketh Round Table

Southport Hesketh Round Table has partnered with local food delivery service, Knock N’ Drop, to say a massive thank you to our local ‘unsung heroes’.

Their nominated local heroes have been randomly selected by Southport Hesketh Round Table to receive a fabulous grocery pack as a thank you for all their personal sacrifice, hard work and kindness at this very difficult time.

These boxes contain fresh fruit, vegetables and groceries, sourced from our local shops, and have been delivered safely and hygienically, directly to front doors, by Knock N’ Drop’s professional team.

Southport Hesketh Round Table spokesman Dean Wilson said: “Over the last few weeks Southport Hesketh Round Table have funded over 40 boxes. 

“The recipients of boxes have been first responders, nurses, hospital workers, shop workers, carers, refuse collectors, milkmen, delivery drivers or just good neighbours, who have gone the extra mile in giving support during this fight against Covid-19.”

Southport Hesketh Round Table members and volunteers are always busy throughout the year, organising some of Southport’s biggest and best-known events. They include the Southport Charity Bonfire and Fireworks; Southport Santa Sleigh; and the Southport Mad Dog 10k race, which was unfortunately cancelled this year due to the coronavirus outbreak.  

Their Round Table Local Heroes scheme was their way of saying thank you to others in the community who, like themselves, go the extra mile to make Southport a better place. 

Dean Wilson said: “Round Table is the largest voluntary organisation for young men aged 18-45 in the world and we are always looking for local guys to get involved for fun, friendship and community events – please email shrt@hotmail.co.uk or call 07711324060 or like our Facebook page @SHRT1199 for more information.”

Birkdale boys and friends since youth, Cameron Millen and Harry Maitland set up Knock N’ Drop as soon as the country went into lockdown. Their aim was to support our local grocery shops and get local food to the most vulnerable in our communities.

This committed and enthusiastic partnership, alongside their professional team of drivers, are ensuring that our heroes get their well-deserved thank you food packs.
