Mayor of Broxtowe Has Launched 2021 Christmas Appeal

09/12/2021 - The Mayor of the Borough of Broxtowe, Councillor Richard MacRae, has launched the Christmas Appeal 2021 which aims to support local foodbanks as well as his chosen charity, Broxtowe Youth Homelessness, by encouraging people to donate items which will be passed to people most in need over the festive period.

There are many ways people can get involved with donations. Collection trolleys have been set up in the Council Offices in Beeston, and are open during office hours 8.30am until 5pm up until Thursday 16th December.The Mayor stood inside the Council Office with a trolley for food donations

We are most grateful for all your donations however, please do not leave food items outside the offices when the building is closed. We regret that due to hygiene and health and safety any items left outside will be destroyed.

The Mayor shared “I really want to do as much as possible to help support my chosen charity, Broxtowe Youth Homelessness and the food banks right across the Borough. It’s very important to help people and it’s all about bringing unity to the community”

Broxtowe Youth Homelessness said “This appeal will help to stock our food parcel cupboard. There are lots of young people in need, especially as the cost of living has increased. A little help can go a long way. We are very grateful for all food donations”

Donations will be shared between Broxtowe Youth Homelessness and Broxtowe foodbanks. You can find a list below of what items are needed for donations this year.
