Have you ever used OwlGetIt? The local business offers a delivery service covering restaurants, cafes, shops and more.
Through their concierge service they will go and pick you up anything! To keep supporting their fellow local people and businesses during the Coronavirus situation they have extended their delivery area and are offering free delivery codes with no minimum spend to elderly and vulnerable people, NHS workers and carers.
With a delivery zone that now stretches 4 miles in any direction from Leicester City Centre, if you’re living or know someone who’s living within that zone be sure to get them to sign up via the OwlGetIt website.
We caught up with owner, Kunal, to find out more.

How wide is your delivery area?
