Christmas Shopping online - help us raise funds

 Hiya

Don't forget that Darnall Forum is working in Partnership with Give as You Live to raise funds for the work that the Forum does.  

If you are thinking of shopping online, then go to the 'Give as you Live' and register for your free account.  You will be asked what charity you want to support and we would appreciate you selecting Darnall Forum (other charities are available to support through 'Give as You Live').

Select from the numerous stores that are available and shop as you normally would.  'Give as You Live' then gives us a percentage of your shop total, without it costing you anything!

Thanks


Chris

Message from Zahira, who is co-ordinating our food bank

 

As winter approaches, the effects of Coronavirus continue to trap people in poverty. Food banks in the Trussell Trust network are forecast to provide a  staggering six emergency food parcels every minute. This cannot be right.

 In my interview this morning on the Toby Foster show I highlighted the importance of providing food packs to struggling families and how it’s never the child’s fault. I shared that Darnall Forum will strive to ensure no family goes to sleep on a empty stomach.

A massive thank you to Community champion Morrisons Meadowhead, Lucy Gibson and the staff at Morrisons for their extremely generous donation. We could not do this without your amazing support. 

Thank you to Sheffield Libraries, Archives & Information for donating children books. The smiles on the young people’s face shows the difference we are collectively making to their lives.

Thank you to our local MP Clive Betts for the food donations and attending to support our initiatives.

Thank you to Natasha Iqbal for baking chocolate brownies and providing desserts for our volunteers.

 A big Thank You to Kinder Kalsi  Gina Kalsi, Adeel Kahn Yasmeen Ali Ana Yousaf Farha Iqbal Sohail Mumtaz Zee Zaman Syd Khaan Manuch Manuch Hadis Lk for helping with packing and delivering food parcels and children’s activity packs. Over 150 packs were made today. We have a great team and will continue to support the most vulnerable in our communities. We are always here to help
