A new on-demand delivery service in Nottingham is linking up with West Bridgford-based charity, the Friary.
Pucho, which is launching on 1st April, say they will run “daily delivery-based errands to save you time and provide optimum convenience for the residents of Nottingham”.
The hyper-local Nottingham-based logistics company has collaborated with the Friary in order to help address the homelessness issue.
Their ‘50p campaign’ will be a city-wide initiative which will allow Pucho customers to be part of the solution and help to eliminate homelessness in Nottingham.
For every order that Pucho receives, 50p will go towards IT services offered by the Friary.
Pucho says their mission “is to give back time to its customers by providing delivery-related tasks on behalf of its customers, allowing them to free their time for matters that deserve their attention”.
Ashmita Mangharam, chief operations at Pucho, said: “We do our best to improve our customers’ lifestyle.
“Time is a commodity we all want more of and have a limited amount of. We understand that people are busy with mundane tasks that they absolutely have to do and cannot ignore.
“So, what if customers could get things done on the go, while they are busy with matters that deserve more of their time and attention.”
Sam Crawford, chief executive at the Friary, said: “Vital tasks such as applying for housing, making or managing welfare benefit claims and carrying out job search activity are all being driven online.
“Without adequate access and training around the use of IT, homeless people can find it extremely difficult to access sustainable accommodation and move towards economic independence.
“We are therefore incredibly grateful to Pucho for launching their 50p campaign, which is helping to raise the resources required to ensure that the Friary’s IT project can provide personalised support to local homeless people to carry out these vital online tasks.”
