From Nine To Noon, 11:07 am on 9 April 2020

1000 students have signed up to the volunteer army, working with supermarket chains to shop and deliver groceries to elderly and vulnerable around the country. Not only that - they've developed a payment system to make it possible where stores don't offer online shopping. The Student Volunteer Army is also working with childcare agencies to recruit students to provide childcare for essential workers.
