What a fantastic morning packing bags for Doorways Derby.
12 handbags for ladies and 12 bags for men.
Thank you to Rachel Hallam for arranging this fantastic donation and thank you to all the generous people who helped to collect and donate and pack the items.
Thank you to Andy Yeomans, Siemens CIS in Ashby, Yeomans Consulting, Castle Donington Motor Club, DM Beauty also Riley, Rhys, Megan and Rebecca for packing. Last but not least Gill and Glenn for delivering all the items.
All these items will go a long way to supporting our visitors.
Thank you for all your generosity.
We have been waiting to tell everyone our good news for over 2 weeks.
It is with great pleasure that we would like to announce that we have received a £10,000 grant from The Morrisons foundation.
We have been working with Morrisons Belper for some time with previous community champion Leanne Glenie who contacted us because another previous employee Julie Arkwright helped us out a great deal also.
We were urged to put in for this grant by Russell who at the time was Belper Morrisons community champion. So a massive thank you Russell, sorry you were not in store today for the photo.
This grant is part payment along with £5000 that we have already raised to purchase another van and kit it out so we are able to continue helping our visitors at Doorways.
We would also like to thank Vee who has made sure that we are not forgotten for end of day produce and essential items when needed.
Thank you again to management and staff for all your continued support. It is very much appreciated.
