The Grand Tour presenter James May has been spotted driving a van, helping a charity deliver food and other necessary items to vulnerable families who are suffering from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
While very little is going on behind the scenes of The Grand Tour thanks to the lockdown and restrictions on travel, Captain Slow has given his time that would be going towards filming to a charity near his London home. While many of us are simply sat watching… well… The Grand Tour, James is working hard to help other people. The charity in question is called The Felix Project.
We, unfortunately, haven’t got access to the photos, so you’ll have to find them by going here.
The charity works to ensure families that need it have ‘fresh, nutritious food’ that otherwise wouldn’t have been sold thanks to various reasons. This food is taken by their vans to the family’s homes. Right now, there are countless families that haven’t got the ability to get themselves food thanks to being in enforced isolation, such as the elderly and those with high-risk health problems, or families who have lost their income thanks to the lockdown.
So, James May has got himself the high-vis jacket that fellow presenter Jeremy Clarkson hates so very much, and selflessly sat himself behind the steering wheel of a van.
The website of the Felix Project says the following:
“Right now, millions of people in the UK regularly experience hunger. Yet tonnes of surplus fresh food is thrown away every day.
“We set out to change this. No one should have to miss a meal.
“We deliver this surplus food to charities and schools so they can provide healthy meals and help the most vulnerable in our society.”
With James May showing us all what can be done – if you’re not of high risk – let’s try to use this as inspiration for what we can be doing to help other people. C’mon gang, put your ideas in the comments below and let’s all try to do something to help someone else over the coming weeks and months.
