Opticians collects for festive foodbank
The team at Specsavers Droitwich is appealing to the local community to spread some Christmas cheer by donating non-perishable Christmas goodies including mince pies, selection boxes, tinned ham and toiletries to the Droitwich Spa Foodbank.
Acting as a collection point, the store’s collection will run between 5 – 19 December, to allow time for donations to be distributed before Christmas.
Store director, Emma Singh, said: ‘The Droitwich Spa Foodbank is amazing, it’s a great cause that supports local people. We appeal to our customers and passers-by to maybe pick up an extra item with their shopping, so that those facing a tough Christmas this year will benefit from their generosity.’
Other products that have been requested to help those in need include breakfast cereals, long-life milk and orange juice, tinned vegetables and pet food. The full list of products can be downloaded at the Droitwich Spa Foodbank website at www.droitwichspa.foodbank.org.uk
The foodbank provides emergency food parcels for those in crisis, and works on a voucher referral system. Operated by the Trussell Trust, it is run in partnership with Droitwich Churches Together.
To drop off donations, or for more information, pop into Specsavers at 10 St Andrews Square.
