I've been using companiions for over a month now and it is such a great app! Got to meet some lovely people, give a helping hand and earn some extra money. Great concept, especially after the year we've all had as a society!

Tom had an injury so being close by I was able to go to the shops for him to get some food. It was all very easy and went smoothly. Tom asked if I wanted a cup of tea so I stayed for a chat...I hope I can help others in similar situations.
