Hucknall Firefighters going above and beyond once again

22/03/2021

Firefighters from Hucknall Fire Station have teamed up with a local food bank ‘Under one roof’ to restart Hucknall Donates.

Firefighters have been continuing to help the food bank with deliveries throughout the entire pandemic and they were asked to help again this time round.

The food bank will run Hucknall Donates slightly different this time. They are dividing Hucknall into three areas and will be collecting from a different area each week to make it more manageable for the foodbank. The collections will take place on the second, third and fourth Monday of the month. You can register for a collection by emailing Hucknalldonates@gmail.com giving your name, address and postcode.

Marcus Pratt, Crew Manager at Hucknall Fire Station, said: “The reason we are doing it this way is because deliveries were taking six hours to do and we needed around 10 firefighters to get all of the collections.

“Our Christmas collection was massive, and we cannot thank the community enough, we are still overwhelmed from the support we received.

“Now that the supplies are starting to get low again, there is no better time to restart this and we are pleased to be able to offer our help and support.”

Yvonne Campbell, Project Manager for Hucknall Foodbank ‘Under One Roof’ said: Once again our local fire station has come up trumps. They are always willing to help out at the foodbank and without them we would not be able to supply the amount of food we do to those in need.”
