Good news for everyone struggling with the heat on the Underground this week – Deliveroo is trying to help commuters stay cool by giving away free ice cream at stations.
Temperatures reach up to 30C on the tube in this weather so within about 30 seconds of ‘mind the closing doors’ the whole carriage turns into one big puddle of sweat.
And tomorrow is set to be the hottest day of the year, with temperatures predicted to reach 37C.
So the delivery firm has teamed up with ice cream brands Judes and Oppo to give away thousands of free cones tomorrow.
Riders will be outside Bank, Tottenham Court Road and Bond Street stations from 12pm today so keep an eye out
We probably recommend enjoying your ice cream before or after you get on the tube though – no one wants an ice cream squashed into their armpit.
Joe Groves at Deliveroo said: ‘No one embraces summer quite like us Brits, from burnt-to-a-crisp BBQs, endless park pursuits and lobster tans galore.
‘But Londoners face something worse than a simple farmers tan, the Central line. So this Thursday as the mercury begins to burst we’ll be handing out delicious Judes and Oppo Ice Cream across the hottest tube line in London.’
If you aren’t able to get your hands on a free cone, you can still get ice cream sent straight to your door through the Jude’s store on Deliveroo, so there’s no need to brave the sun.
We also brought you the news earlier this week that you can now order items from Sainsbury’s through Deliveroo.
The supermarket is offering freshly-baked sourdough pizzas, a range of sweet and savoury snacks, dips and soft drinks through the app.
Really there is no reason to leave the house again.
