Help given to local people in crisis

Local people in crisis will be given a helping hand this festive season thanks to staff at Peak District Rural Housing Association.

Housing Services Assistant, Theresa Chamberlain, has been collecting donations of food for  the Trussell Trust Foodbank Network, which provides a minimum of three days’ emergency food to those in need.

All the items are being used by the food bank to make Christmas hampers, with mince pies and Christmas puddings being donated as well as basics such as tinned and packet food.

Today, all the donations were delivered to the food bank to help ensure local people don’t go hungry this Christmas
