Nottingham City Council has teamed up with Nottingham Forest and Wilko retailers for a project designed to help the City of Nottingham during these difficult times.
Nottingham Forest community staff have been helping to deliver over 1000 essential items and easter eggs to the most vulnerable people in the local community. Nottingham City Council are then putting these eggs in care packages that go out to those self-isolating and most in need.
Working alongside Wilko, Nottingham Forest and Rushcliffe Borough Council, the club have been helping transport all the items to designated depots around the City. NCC staff are delivering care packages and from next week NFFC will help deliver these items to households around the City of Nottingham.
Councillor Rebecca Langton, Portfolio Holder for Communities at Nottingham City Council, said: “In the last couple of weeks people from all across the city have really pulled together to help each other. These Easter Eggs and household supplies are a welcome donation from Nottingham Forest and Wilko. We are so grateful for their support, it will make a big difference to some vulnerable families and put a smile on the faces of Nottingham children during these difficult times.”
Graham Moran the CEO for the Community Trust said: “It is vital that Nottingham Forest are actively engaged in helping the local community during these difficult times. The instructions from the owner, Mr Evangelos Marinakis and the club’s Board is to help wherever we can, it doesn’t matter how big or small the gesture is, we have an obligation to the City and it’s people to lend our support.
