Children’s entertainer Steve Goodwin, who lives in Horsham, said he had been inspired to do good by members of the Horsham Self-Isolation Support Group.
He added: “Quite a lot of parties have to be cancelled at the moment – it’s left me with some time on my hands.
“I thought what can I do to not only help those people and bring a smile to their faces.
“I know I can go out in a car and make collections. Pick up shopping and stuff.”
Steve said he plans to do the shopping trips a couple of times a week and has picked up prescriptions for those in need as well.
He added: “I’m making a big deal of telling the shopkeepers and assistants what an amazing job they’re doing. They’re the real super heroes.
“It’s about bringing a bit of joy in uncertain times. I would like it to inspire other people to help out.”
Steve said he would self-isolate if he came down with a temperature or cough but is ‘taking all the precautions’.
He added: “Instead of high fives we’re doing elbow nudges. At the end of each day I will be washing my suit and also spraying [it] with dettol.”
