Don't lose out on free food!

Fairshare are seeking more members in the Cannock Chase District to join for the opportunity to receive free surplus food from supermarkets.

The Cannock scheme is due to be launched in the next few weeks and Fairshare are seeking organisations and charities operating in the area

It would be better to see good food being used by the local community rather than it going to waste.

Banking Staff Support Local Recycling raising over £2,500

Star Foundation gave a chance for a team of seven Natwest bankers to volunteer their time for a day and help with community recycling.

The team benefited from a short orientation session to start with and finished the day with a feedback session to develop business from a ‘fresh eyes’ perspective. Their help on the day raised over £1265, which Natwest then kindly doubled to over £2500.

Be activities wise this summer

There are thousands of activities for children and young people taking place right across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent this summer.

Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Safeguarding Children Boards are calling on activity leaders and parents to ‘be activities wise’ to help keep children and young people safe this summer and make sure parents and activity leaders are aware of their safeguarding responsibilities.

Proposed merger of Burton Hospitals and Derby Teaching Hospitals

The boards of Burton Hospitals and Derby Teaching Hospitals have approved the Outline Business Case for the partnership between the two organisations, recommending a merger as the proposed way forward.

This collaboration is grounded in the core principles of retaining Queen’s as a vibrant district general hospital in Burton, which includes A&E, securing specialist services in Derby for a wider population, and considering the most appropriate use of our community facilities in Lichfield and Tamworth.

For more information about the proposed merger please see below.
