A kind-hearted farmer from Papplewick has donated 20 bags of potatoes to help feed those in need during the coronavirus crisis.
Alex Marshall, who operates a farm in the Papplewick area, put together the 12.5kg bags, which were picked up by the Nottinghamshire Police’s Gedling Neighbourhood Support Unit for distribution.
The bags were delivered to a care home in Gedling and foodbanks in Bulwell, Bestwood and Ashfield.
Operational Support Demand Management Inspector Tim Ringer said: “It’s great that people are wanting to do their bit wherever they can, and we as a police force, will continue to do certain tasks, which might be slightly out of the ordinary, to ensure that people are not going without and that people are safe.”
Police confirmed that all deliveries were made in line with social distancing and hygiene regulations.
