Hi, my name is PeterJackson! I need someone to pick up and post an eBay order for me

PeterJackson Member Posts: 4 Listener
Morning. Briefly I have terminal cancer, recently spread from lung to brain.

My first, and urgent, request is for a willing volunteer living in the Telford area to help me pick up an eBay order and post it to me in Brighton!
Not too onerous and obviously I will pay all costs, but the seller only wants pickup only.  I can arrange courier pack&ship but it will have to from you.

Does that sound something you can help me with?

The auction ends Saturday evening (and of course I have to win it!) but if all goes to plan, it will need picking up Sunday or Monday.

Please contact me ASAP...
Regards Peter

    Hello @peterjacks01 and welcome to the community. Thank you for asking but as mentioned above we don't provide that sort of service here. I'd suggest Facebook but you already appear to have tried that. Have you considered Gumtree?
