Until now, the only places we have had donation points for ‘The Basic Idea’ have been in local church buildings – whilst these are accessable to most people, we have been looking for a way to make donating simpler.
So, to make it even easier for our friends and neighbours living around the Gregory’s Way and John O’Gaunts Way areas of town to donate items to ‘The Basic Idea’ we have partnered with the local team at the TESCO Express to provide a donation point in store.
The donation point can be found towards the front of the shop near the tills.
Hope for Belper’s first project of 2009 has been designed with the credit crunch in mind.
Called The Basic Idea, the basic idea is to provide basic food and toiletry items to familes in financial crisis.
Boxes for collection of items are being put in local churches with the intention that those who would like to and are able to do so will purchase one extra item to put in them every time they go shopping.
We are also looking for volunteers to pack and deliver boxes as families are referred. We anticipate that this will not be a big commitment, especially in the first few months.
