A foodbank in Arnold is appealing for donations due to an increase in service users.
The team at Arnold Foodbank, which is based at Daybrook Baptist Church on Mansfield Road, are urging people to donate food and also funds to its base.
Figures released by the Trussel Trust – which manages the foodbank – shows a 30% increase in people using the service.
The charity now estimates that £8,500 will be needed to cover this next financial year – up on the £4,671 spent last year.
To find the extra food and money needed to feed those needing help, the Trust has launched a JustGiving site to accept donations.
They will also be doing an in-store food collection at the Asda in Arnold on August 31 between 9.30am-4pm and volunteers will be on hand to share information and take food donations.
Volunteers will also have a stall at the Killisick Fun Day this Saturday (July 6) where you can also find out more about the charity’s work.
