From 16 Nov - 04 Dec (The deadline for donations is Friday 04 December), the church in Nottingham is coming together to make Christmas boxes for those in need. We are asking people across the city to get together with their small group, friends and families to buy the contents of a box, and bring it to their local hub. From the hubs they will be packed and distributed through the foodbank network, and other organisations working with the most vulnerable people in our city. See below for a list of what to donate. Please drop the boxes off at The Arches' socially distanced drop-off zone, click here for drop off times. We will be providing the boxes for the donations.
If you'd like to volunteer to help fill boxes click here to sign up or if you'd like to volunteer to be a delivery driver click here. For more information, please visit the Love Your Neighbour Nottingham's Facebook page.
