Former Manchester United coach and the current coach of West Ham United, David Moyes, has decided to volunteer as a Deliveryman at local fruits and vegetable shops in the United Kingdom. The coach took up this responsibility as a means to render his assistance amid the COVID-19 lockdown in the country.
The 56-year-old coach became a temporary Deliveryman after he responded to an advertisement calling for volunteers to help elderly people at a community near Lancashire seaside, North West England.
As of Wednesday, April 22, 2020, David Moyes has spent four days driving from the shops to inner parts of the community delivery fruits and vegetables to the elderly without looking forward to a salary.
Despite engaging in such a demanding job, David Moyes said the delivery job has not stopped him from carrying out his daily routines as a coach of a Premier League club.
“When the coronavirus first hit here, I was in a fruit-and-veg shop in the village,” the West Ham United Coach told Sky Sports. “There was a thing up in the window that drivers were needed. So I volunteered, as my wife was away at the time and I was on my own.
“All I was doing was dropping it at the door, knocking and then going away. It was beautiful big boxes of fruit and veg.
“I thought, ‘This is great!’ I was really enjoying it. Going back to the shop to get another lot and then filling the car up.”
