28/11/2023: We all need a helping hand sometimes. P3 is a local charity supporting people with their mental health, well being and housing needs across Derbyshire and they are asking for donations for their food parcels ahead of the winter months.  The parcels are gifted to the people they support to ensure they don’t have to worry about how they will feed themselves and their family over the festive period.  If you’d be interested in donating or are looking for somewhere to drop off your reverse advent calendar, then please drop any donations off at the P3 Charity on 98 Bath Street in Ilkeston or book a collection on 0115 930 9199. If possible, organisers have asked for donations to be dropped off before 15th December. Find out more at
