Fire crews 'overwhelmed' by public generosity for the season of goodwill

Published on: Friday, 11th December 2020

Following a visit to the Arena Foodbank back in the Summer of 2018, the crews from Ilkeston Fire Station were overwhelmed by the generosity and good will from our local community and the wonderful volunteers who help out.

2020 marks the third year that crews will be collecting non-perishable food items and toiletries, at Tesco and Morrisons supermarkets in the town as part of their 'Give What You Can' initiative.
The fire engine will be parked at the front of the store, and if whilst shopping, you're able to buy an extra couple of items, and place them on the fire engine when you leave, it’ll help out those in our community, that need it the most!

  • 12th December 10:00-15:00 @ Tesco
  • 13th December 10:00-15:00 @ Morrisons
  • 15th December 10:00-15:00 @ Morrisons
  • 18th December 10:00-15:00 @ Tesco 

Crew members thank you in advance and wish you a very Merry Christmas!
