Details
In addition to the cost of your shopping, Age UK Berkshire make a charge of £8 each time we order your shopping, for arranging the service. The supermarkets may also make a small charge for delivery. But we know this is much more cost-effective than paying a Care Worker to do your shopping for you (which may cost as much as £40), so Easy Shop at £8 each time is cheaper and highly recommended by our customers. There is a £10 registration fee to set up the Easy Shop service.
