HELP NEEDED FOR FOODBANK COLLECTION DAYS – Friday 15th & Saturday 16th June: We have organised a 2 day collection at Tesco stores in Beeston, Toton & Carlton on Friday 15th & Saturday 16thJune from 9am-5pm for our Foodbanks, and we need your help please.  For those new to this venture, there will be shopping lists available for volunteers to pass onto the public to ask them to help us feed the hungry at local foodbanks.  We just ask for a few extra items not the whole list (definitely no beans or pasta please!), and it’s entirely at their discretion.  Some won’t be interested but some will do as you ask and others might give cash so money tins will be there in the entrance with the volunteers.

If you’d like to help at the BEESTON store, please contact Sue Hillier at Hope Nottingham with your preferred date & time on 0303 040 1110 or via email: sue.hillier@hopenottingham.org.uk.
