- Daventry News - Comfort and Joy Campaign Launched
A festive parcel scheme which aims to bring Christmas cheer to those in need is being supported by Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service and Northamptonshire Police.
The annual Comfort and Joy campaign helps those who are staying in refuges as a result of experiencing domestic abuse, as well as other vulnerable families who are struggling at Christmas.
Jointly organised by the Daventry District and South Northamptonshire Community Safety Partnership and the Daventry District Forum, its aim is to provide them with a few gifts and treats, as well as food, toiletries and other essential items.
Parcels for men, women and children as well as Christmas food parcels are being put together and a list of suggested donations can be found at: www.daventrydc.gov.uk/CommunitySafety
Donations can be made at the Daventry District Council offices, in Lodge Road, Daventry, at Daventry Police Station, in New Street, at Daventry Fire Station, in Staverton Road and at the South Northamptonshire Council offices at The Forum, Moat Lane, Towcester, up to and including Tuesday 17 December.
All of the items donated will go directly to local people living in refuges as well as other vulnerable families in Daventry District, South Northamptonshire and the wider county area this Christmas.
