A neighbourhood in north west England is managing to get through the coronavirus crisis thanks to the kind heart and clever planning of a young family doing their bit to supply the vulnerable.

Three young boys and their parents have helped more than 50 isolated and vulnerable neighbours needing food or a friend during the lockdown period in the Breightmet area of Bolton, Greater Manchester.

Mother Angela Barry, 32, a church administrator, was keen to help her elderly neighbours after thinking about how her grandfather, who died last year, might have struggled to cope during lockdown. Mobilising her sons Joshua (nine) Ben (seven) and Isaac (four) an idea was hatched.

The Barry family have now become famous in their community for setting up a free vegetable stall, delivering essentials to vulnerable residents, and offering to connect with those quarantining alone.

The youngsters were all too happy to help out when their mother Angela decided to do her bit to help the vulnerable amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis

After their parents stocked up with fruit and veg, the brothers set about making signs for their stall and now 'get very excited whenever somebody comes to take an item'

Mrs Barry said their endeavour began when she ordered extra boxes of vegetables from their local market for neighbours and her sons couldn't wait to set up a stall in their front garden, for those in the community to come and take what they need. 

Her husband Martin Barry, 33, a wood machinist, has also been helping after he was furloughed.

Mrs Barry said their children, who have been working on the stall for two weeks, 'absolutely love it'.

'They get dead excited every time someone takes anything from the stall,' she said.

'They're getting to know so many people in the area, and justpaste.it everyone recognises them. They think they are famous.'

'They also like it because we are remembering (my) grandad by looking after the elderly people in our area,' she added.

The young brothers, of the Breightmet area of Bolton, help parents Angela and Martin with the produce and have become well recognised for their good deeds
