ASDA have produced a Volunteer Shopping Card

 
A message from ASDA:
Not being able to get to the shops for your essentials is hard. Especially in the current situation. That’s why we’ve created the Volunteer Shopping Card, the cashless - and less stressful - way for people to help get the shopping in. Ideal for those who might be self-isolating, older or medically vulnerable, the Volunteer Shopping Card provides a contactless, safe and secure way to allow others to shop for them.
