More than 700 PNECET Helping Hampers have now been delivered to vulnerable members of the community after seven weeks in operation.
The joint campaign between the club and the Community and Education Trust began towards the end of April and is still going strong with continued deliveries to elderly season ticket holders and vulnerable members of the community upon request.
We have continued to deliver to students on our post-16 and secondary school provision programmes to assist them at this time.
As part of National Volunteers Week, specifically on Power of Youth day [Wednesday 3rd June], we were joined by Katie McDougall, an NCS graduate from PNECET to volunteer for the first time before again volunteering later in the week.

We have also been celebrating the stories of fellow volunteers Paul Whelan and Nicola Parkinson, who have both become trusted volunteers of the campaign in recent weeks, and had their stories shared as part of National Volunteers Week.
We are still seeking donations to ensure the campaign can continue running as long as possible, supporters can donate here if they are able to with any amount, however large or small, thoroughly appreciated.
Likewise, we continue to accept nominations for vulnerable members of the community to receive a hamper, make your nomination by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
