Skegness branch give 2017 food for thought
Building society and estate agency colleagues at our Skegness branch made a New Year resolution to help families in need of a boost.
That’s why they are collecting food donations from members of the public throughout January and February - items which will be then handed over to Skegness Food Bank, via local charity The Storehouse Church, to be turned into food parcels and distributed where required.
Customer reviewer Charley Prince said: “At The Nottingham we pride ourselves on supporting areas of our community where there is a need - helping The Storehouse fits perfectly with our ethos.
“Prior to Christmas there is a lot of emphasis on goodwill and helping people but the reality is that when the cost of Christmas bites that New Year can be equally as testing a time for many.
“That’s why we have organised this food collection and we are certain the kind-hearted people of Skegness will make many donations.”
The Skegness Food Bank sees several initiatives and organisations, including The Storehouse, in the Lincolnshire town come together to help local families.
Anyone wanting to contribute non-perishable food items, such as UHT milk, cereal, tinned food, pasta sauce or tea bags, can visit the Skegness branch at 11 Lumley Road, PE25 3LL.
It is not the first time we have supported The Storehouse, who predominantly help people via a debt advice service. In the summer of 2016 they received a £3,000 Grant For Good from us to help with their work.
