Glenfield Support Group

Glenfield Support Group

Big, big thank you to the new Morrisons' management at Glenfield (the store is yet to be finished on the site of the former Coop), who, following the Parish Council's initial request, have provided food donation cages at the Morrison's Petrol Station off Station Road. Once filled these will be collected by the Glenfield Support Group to assist in providing food packages to the elderly and vulnerable in Glenfield. Coupled with this, Morrisons are also endeavouring to provide some additional food items to assist the Glenfield Support Group. More »

The Parish Council have also assisted the Support Group with some starter funding and have applied to Leicestershire County Council's Communities Fund for additional funding for at least the next 12 weeks to help the organisers and the numerous volunteers (some 300 at this time) who are providing an excellent service to support the most vulnerable residents within Glenfield.
