A West Norfolk bed business is using the lockdown to help the community which has shown it so much support in the past.

Staff at Shernborne-based Wrought Iron and Brass Bed Company have been delivering essential medication and food to the county’s residents.

“Since we opened in 2003, we’ve been blessed by the support of our local community and now was a time for us to get involved and pay it forward,” said company director Harry Thompson.

“We’re so proud of our team, so when we asked who would be willing to volunteer and come out of lockdown, all were eager and keen to help.”

The business got in touch with Norfolk County Council and offered to help and its volunteers have now completed nearly 200 personal deliveries to vulnerable residents, while also helping out Kemps Fruit and Veg in Hunstanton.

Powder  coater turned delivery volunteer Sarah Franks said: “One man clapped me for delivering his fruit and veg box. 

“Everyone has said thank you and I’m finding it such a humbling experience because what they don’t realise is they are also helping me too.”
