Rotherham’s Food for People in Crisis Partnership (FIC) has launched their Christmas Appeal, asking those in Rotherham that are able to help by donating either food, toiletries or money.
The FIC Partnership consists of different organisations working across the borough, and often it is these organisations that people turn to for support when they have nowhere else to go. The organisations offer food parcels and/or hot meals and other support to those in need.
People, groups and organisations can make a donation to the FIC Christmas Appeal either by cheque or bank transfer. Cheques should be made payable to ‘People in Need (VAR)’ and sent to Voluntary Action Rotherham, The Spectrum, Coke Hill, Rotherham S60 2HX. To make a bank transfer, donations can be sent to ‘People in Need (VAR)’, account number 20298847, sort code 086001.
Every penny raised is directed via small grants to groups providing food in crisis support.
Last year the Appeal raised over £3,000 in cash donations (from a variety of sources) and donations of food and toiletries. For more information about the FIC Christmas Appeal or to arrange a donation point for food and toiletries, please contact Voluntary Action Rotherham on 01709 723097.
