NORTH Notts BID has arranged for the delivery of Morrisons food donations across Retford and Worksop emergency food centres where BID members BCVS (Bassetlaw Community Volunteer Service) and Bassetlaw District Council are coordinating distribution to those in need.
The supermarket chain has – and will continue to – donate £1000 worth of stock each week for vulnerable families and elderly people across North Nottinghamshire.
Sally Gillborn, chief executive of North Notts BID, said: “When the food banks in Retford and Worksop closed during the pandemic, we knew we had to find a way to help the Morrisons team to deliver its generous donations to those families and elderly people in need.”
“BCVS is always incredibly responsive and willing to be on hand whenever help is required, so we knew the team would ensure that the resources provided were distributed throughout the community.”
The donations are part of a wider Morrisons initiative to provide each store across the UK with stock to donate to local community groups and food banks.
Victoria Brooks, community champion for Morrisons’ Worksop and Retford stores, said: “We’re doing all we can to help feed the nation during this crisis. I’d like to thank our customers for their generous donations which will be added to our pallet of groceries each week. We’ve also added hundreds of Easter Eggs this week, which I hope will bring some joy to the families with Notts BID and BCVS support.”
