Christmas appeal launched

Mansfield District Council is running another Christmas appeal for food and warm clothes, following the success of last year’s appeal.

Donations will go to help vulnerable people living in temporary accommodation, sheltered or supported housing complexes, the Mansfield Baptist Church homeless shelter and people who use the Council’s Tenancy Support and Homeless Prevention services.

We are asking people to donate any of the following:

•Non-perishable food such as tins, packet food, dried pasta and rice
•Warm clothing such as socks, coats, hats, gloves and scarves

Please bring donations to the Housing desk in the Civic Centre before 19 December.

Portfolio Holder for Tenancy Services and Special Housing Needs, Cllr Mick Colley said: “The response from the people of Mansfield to last year’s Christmas appeal was incredible. Your donations really do make a difference to people’s lives, so please support this very worthwhile cause if you can.”
