Nominations now open to spread the festive joy

Hamper Hamper

Christmas spirit is set to be spread amongst those most in need as South Derbyshire District Council launches a popular annual initiative.

60 hampers are to be given to Council tenants and residents as part of the Dreamscheme Christmas Hamper Project, which is now in its sixth year.

In previous years people such as a homeless single mum and her three young children, a family experiencing financial hardship, a tenant who cares full-time for his disabled mother and grandmother, a family fleeing domestic abuse, two elderly widows, a bed-bound tenant, and an elderly gentleman who looks after his neighbours have received hampers.

The Council is working in partnership with South Derbyshire CVS Food Bank to provide a sprinkling of seasonal cheer.

Donations such as toys, treats, tinned goods, toiletries and other items are now being sought from generous residents and businesses across the District.

Nominations can be made by clicking the below green button.
