Donations are left that can benefit the community

Cottam residents have been displaying their generosity by donating needed items in baskets at Cottam Community Centre.


Trevor Hart leaves two containers outside the front door of the centre, and each day he visits at least twice to empty the donations.

Residents bring food and toiletry items and fill the containers continually full of vital items.

Trevor and his team then sort the items and distribute them across the area to those in need.


Trevor said: “I am utterly humbled by people’s generosity and it has really helped to bring people together as they care in a very practical way for others.”
