People are being reminded they have just one week left to donate food to help families in need this Christmas.

Daventry District Council (DDC) is working with Daventry and District Over Fifties Forum (DOF), Daventry Food Bank, Danetre Rotary Club, Daventry and District Housing and Cummins to assemble hampers for distribution to people in need district-wide.

The hampers aim to provide all the essential items and ingredients to help make Christmas special for those in need. The scheme has received support from community organisations, businesses, schools and individuals. Donations can be made at reception at DDC offices in Lodge Road, Daventry until Monday, December 15.

The hampers will then be delivered to people in need in time for Christmas by Daventry Food Bank.
