Long Eaton branch collect for Canaan Trust
People visiting our Long Eaton branch can play their part in supporting local homelessness charity the Canaan Trust.
Throughout 2017 colleagues are collecting donations of non-perishable food which will be parcelled up and handed out to individuals and families who need them most.
Anyone wanting to lend their support can take their items (with at least three months left on their expiry date) to the branch - which can be found at 58 High Street - between 9am and 5pm on any Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday, 10am and 5pm on a Thursday or 9am and 12 noon Saturdays.
Tesco in Long Eaton have kindly supplied a shopping trolley for the collection - which now has pride of place in-branch!
Senior customer adviser Wayne Curtis said: “We have been big supporters of the Canaan Trust for several years now.
“They are a great cause for us to be connected with as our ethos as an organisation is to help people put a roof over their heads and build a more secure future.
“I’ve no doubt that our customers and the good folk of Long Eaton will give generously to the food collection.”
Canaan Trust’s Kevin Curtis added: “No-one chooses to be homeless but the sad fact is that it is something that is on the rise, particularly in Long Eaton, Sawley and surrounding areas.
“We are extremely grateful for the ongoing support given to us by The Nottingham. They truly do care about the community in which they trade and that should be applauded.”
