A statement from the group said: “Covid-19 Kindness is the new campaign from Preston’s Promise aimed at helping those most affected by coronavirus.
“Preston’s Promise has pledged to help those Prestonians most in need by donating essential items to them- whether groceries, toiletries, medication or any other necessities.
“We are here to help all those who require it. Our target is to raise £10,000 and use our network of contacts, donors and well-wishers to buy the most necessary essentials at the cheapest possible prices.
“We want the biggest possible return for your donations. We’ll persuade, plead and motivate our wholesale contacts to provide the most for the cheapest price.”
