Swindon firm launches the service we all need – ice-cream delivery

A Swindon firm has launched a service offering what we all need right now: a doorstep ice-cream delivery service.

Rays Ice Cream has launched a new, temporary, home delivery service for anyone living within a 15-minute drive of either of their shops in Royal Wootton Bassett and in Old Town Swindon.

The service is in response to the Covid-19 outbreak and is designed both to help those who are self-isolating and to maintain sufficient sales to enable the business to keep going.

"Our shops remain open, although we have made some changes such as installing hand wash stations and making them takeaway only," said owner Hadi Brooks.

"But we’re aware that many people will be self-isolating, or sick and therefore will have to stay away. They may still want ice cream and we would certainly still appreciate their business. This should be the start of our busy period and we’ve still got staff, rent and plenty of other bills to pay so we thought launching a home delivery service would help, both ourselves and the people who can’t leave their homes."

Orders for home delivery will be placed through their website, www.RaysIceCream.co.uk
