English to Chinese: Community Links Assisted Shopping Program Detailed field: Advertising / Public Relations
Source text - English Do you need a friendly arm to hold on to? Do you have a visual impairment and can’t read the labels? Do you have trouble holding on to the shopping trolley and picking items from the shelf at the same time? Is the bottom shelf too low and the top shelf too high?
The Community Links Assisted Shopping Program links a volunteer with someone who wants to go shopping but requires extra assistance and friendly support. This would be a regular arrangement, once a week, fortnight or month, not an ad hoc service. The time and day of the week will be determined by your wishes and the availability of the volunteer.
The volunteer would meet you at your home, travel with you to whichever shops or shopping centre you wish to go to and then come back with you to your home. Usually, this would take up to two hours.
