Please join Astle Paterson and support the Burton Mail’s ‘Feed Our Families’ campaign

This is a call to all local businesses, schools, groups and individuals to support the Burton Mail’s efforts to fill the shelves of food banks in the town and give families in need the chance to have three meals each day throughout this Christmas period.

The Burton Mail has teamed up with Burton YMCA and the Salvation Army to launch their Feed Our Families campaign.   The Salvation Army delivers around 100 food parcels each month in East Staffordshire, and a further 200 at Christmas.   The YMCA hands out around 70 a month to people in Burton and South Derbyshire.

As Christmas draws near your thoughts will no doubt turn to your own celebrations with your own families – however, we would ask that you pause to think about families in the local area who are in need.   By taking the simple action of buying an extra tin or packet of unperishable food and donating it for use in a food parcel you can help a local family celebrate Christmas this year.

The staff at Astle Paterson are fully behind the Burton Mail’s campaign and have already donated 3 boxes of food.

Food can be dropped off at:-

  • Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, the Salvation Army charity shop, Barratt Homes visitor centre, Reconnect Centre (James Street) and the Burton Mail offices in Burton; and
  • the Co-op in Stretton.

Further, if you are unable to drop your food off then please contact either the Salvation Army or the YMCS in Burton to arrange for one of their representatives to collect.

What can be donated:-

  • Teabags, coffee, UHT milk and sugar.
  • Drinking chocolate
  • Cereal
  • Tinned meals – Irish stew, chilli con carne, spaghetti bolognese, macaroni cheese, curry, tinned pies.
  • Tinned meat
  • Tinned fish
  • Tinned soup
  • Cheese slices
  • Baked beans and spaghetti
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Noodles
  • Tinned or packet vegetables
  • Tinned fruit
  • Rice pudding
  • Jelly
  • Biscuits, crackers, crisps, chocolate
  • Jars of jam or marmalade.

So please do what you can and give generously this Christmas time.
