Nottingham Forest have teamed up with Wilko retailers and Nottingham City Council in a project designed to help the City of Nottingham during these difficult times.
Nottingham Forest Community Trust staff have been helping to deliver over 1,000 essential items and Easter eggs to the most vulnerable people in the local community.
Working alongside Wilko and Nottingham City Council, the club have been helping transport all of the items to designated depots around the city. From next week, NFFC and partners will help deliver these items to households around the City of Nottingham.
Graham Moran, CEO of the 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: “In the last couple of weeks 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.”
