Rykneld Homes is working closely with North East Derbyshire District Council and Parish Councils to set up food donation points at locations across the district.
We are inviting members of the public to donate suitable items of food that can be delivered to the most vulnerable people – including those who may not be able to do their own shopping because they have been asked by the government to self-isolate.
Local foodbanks are also running very short of supplies which could affect vulnerable people in our area.
We are also looking for people to donate games or puzzle books to help keep housebound people occupied.
We would be very grateful for any donations which will be delivered by staff from the Council, Rykneld Homes and a team of volunteers.
People can drop off supplies at the locations and designated times below.
Monday – Wingerworth Parish Hall – 12 – 2pm
Holmewood - Abundant Life Christian Centre, Tibshelf Road - 12 - 2pm
