I know the devil would be in the detail. It’s just something I would like to be able to do and if this could be made available as an option by Amazon that would be really great.
I am in the 1.5m who have to shield but I’ve signed up to be a phone volunteer. It seems likely that I will be able to have some of my wages paid by the government, so I see it as a moral obligation to volunteer if I (others) posisbly can. If your wages are being paid by the government it seems to me to be the least you can do.
I personaly don’t expect a thank you for volunteering in any sense. But I think those who will save lives at the cutting edge and who (sadly) will have to watch many die that they couldn’t save. I think that takes real guts.
I used to work for the NHS and we used to get given a card that would allow you to get discounts at certain busineses eg 5% off at Comet (remember them!). If that scheme still runs then presumably that could be utilised in some way.
