An Aberdeen transport firm has teamed up with city businesses to offer food and drink deliveries within a 10 mile radius for Virtual May Day.
Aberdeen Taxis will deliver mouth-watering dishes from Melt and Muchacho, as well as drinks business Rutabaga, within 10 miles of the city centre.
This means communities, which are not able to order usually from the likes of Deliveroo, will be able to tuck in and enjoy delicious food on Sunday as part of May Day.
Chris Douglas of Aberdeen Taxis said he is delighted to be involved in the online event taking place this weekend which will see free live sets from north-east DJs on YouTube.
Chris said: “We are going to offer delivery to within 10 miles of the city centre, taking in areas like Bridge of Don, Westhill, Portlethen and more.
“Currently, most delivery services in the city work within a two mile radius. By expanding this, it really does engage the wider community.
“We aim to expand the reach and get people’s favourite products to them via a contactless door drop delivery on the day, with a donation from each delivery going to charity.”
Those taking part in Virtual May Day are encouraged to make a donation to local charity Mental Health Aberdeen and NHS Grampian’s endowment fund which provides comfort boxes to patients, as well as fund local research into COVID-19. To donate, click here.
