Specsavers in Burton is spending the run up to Christmas collecting food supplies for the Burton Mail’s Feed Our Families campaign after donating a successful collection last year.
The team from the High Street store are encouraging members of the local community to donate tins, jars and similar supplies to help provide food to local people in desperate need this Christmas.
‘We’re delighted to be supporting the Feed Our Families campaign again this year,’ said store director, Linda Joyce. ‘It’s really important to recognise that there are so many people in our community who struggle to put food on the table over Christmas. As a local business, it’s our responsibility to help as much as we can.’
For those who would like to give something to those in need this Christmas, items that are greatly appreciated include: cereal, coffee, tea, tinned foods, minced pies, pasta, rice, soup and biscuits.
The Feed Our Families campaign aims to feed the hungry in Burton and South Derbyshire over the Christmas period. The campaign will see donations of food distributed between four vital causes, which work tirelessly to support those in society who need a helping hand.
