Alongside Nottingham Forest Football Club we have teamed up with Wilko retailers and Nottingham City Council in a project designed to help the City of Nottingham during these difficult times.
After the generous donations from Wilko, our staff have been helping to deliver thousands of essential items and Easter eggs to the most vulnerable people in the local community.
Working alongside Nottingham City Council, we have been helping transport all of the items to designated depots around the city. Throughout the lockdown period NFFC and partners have and will help to deliver these items to households around the City of Nottingham.
Graham Moran, CEO of Nottingham Forest 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 its people to lend our support.”
Councillor Rebecca Langton, Portfolio Holder for Communities at Nottingham City Council, said: “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.”
