Rosie the Little Pink Tuk Tuk

The Rosie May foundation who are based in Bingham are utilising Rosie the Little Pink Tuk Tuk to help vulnerable families and residents, who are self-isolating, by training volunteers to drive the Tuk Tuk so they can deliver basic essential items and help keep them safe.

They’ve been delivering:

  • food parcels
  • prescriptions
  • birthday and anniversary cakes for elderly residents over 70
  • and not forgetting a smile and wave!

Without volunteers to drive the Tuk Tuk they wouldn’t be able to carry out this work and help the local community during this challenging time. This video clip will introduce to you one of their amazing volunteers, Phil. Phil told us "it’s so much more than delivering items to those in need it’s about the conversation and a smile that goes with it".

The County Council is proud to have been able to support keep the Tuk Tuk on the road with a £2,000 contribution from our Community Support Fund.
