A man from Lincoln has received an award from Deliveroo for his heroic efforts in the community through lockdown.
Chris Wright, 31, has been working as a delivery rider for almost five years, and was awarded a prize at the annual Deliveroo Rider Awards.
Chris not only continued to work throughout lockdown, but he also voluntarily delivered essentials to people during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Deliveroo called Chris and all the other award winners “heroes in their communities.”
Chris Wright was delighted to be recognised with the award, telling The Lincolnite: “I’m really thankful to those who voted for me and for the award.
“I just wanted to help those in need and I’m in a position where I can do just that. So to me, it was a no brainer.
“In my personal opinion all Deliveroo riders are heroes, so I accept this award on behalf of us all.
“We aren’t everyone’s cup of tea but we work hard every single day to provide a service, come rain or shine.
“So this is for us all, and especially for those who didn’t get recognised for doing what I’ve done.”
