Tuk tuk delivery service supporting Welsh communities during coronavirus outbreak

A small business in Pembrokeshire which hires out tuk tuks has repurposed the three wheelers to support the community by delivering shopping and prescriptions during the coronavirus outbreak.

Tuk Tuk Time hires out its tuk tuks for weddings, sightseeing tours and even taxi services.

But when the coronavirus outbreak meant they could no longer do that, they set up their Rainbow Delivery Squad to deliver groceries and other essentials to people staying at home.

It's great fun delivering in the tuk tuks because they attract so much attention and they're so popular but delivering as well you really realise how vital it is and how much the community need it.

The tuk tuks are now operating seven days a week. They rely on volunteer drivers and fuel donated by a local garage.

Obviously during that time we've got to make sure we're following the social distancing so we leave the items on the doorstep, knock the door and step back.
