Shedman, Scotland’s leading manufacturer and distributor of garden sheds, has delivered 70 small Shopping Sheds entirely free of charge to vulnerable individuals and families throughout Greater Glasgow
The attractively designed Shopping Sheds offer a safe and secure way to deliver shopping to friends and family, protecting essential items from the elements and easy to collect. They were distributed on a first come, first served basis.
Shedman’s Managing Director, Bill Roddie, said: “We have had to furlough 20 team members because of the COVID-19 crisis, so, with the help of a couple of pals, I’ve been delivering most of the small Shopping Sheds to deserving people throughout Greater Glasgow.
“Some of those who applied for the sheds entered because they had nowhere to safely leave supplies for loved ones, including shielded senior citizens, people battling cancer or diabetes, or those with breathing difficulties. The reaction from people has been tremendous and we are sure that in these unprecedented times, delivering food and essential supplies to loved ones will be just a bit easier.”
Feedback on their Facebook page from recipients and family members of recipients across Glasgow have been uniformly positive.
The Shopping Sheds can be situated at a front door or in a garden area. When lockdown measures are lifted, they can be adapted for further use as, for example, a planter, a parcel dropbox or a children’s outdoor toy box.
Shedman is a family run business with over 30 years of experience in providing high quality affordable garden sheds, workshops and playhouses. All its sheds are hand-built in Scotland using high quality, fully treated, tongue & groove Swedish timber. From its base in Glasgow, the company delivers and installs the sheds at its customer’s home.
