Here's what Jane said about how a simple food parcel impacted her:

The company I worked for has gone out of business so I’ve lost my job and can't get another one at the moment. I was so scared I wouldn't have anything to feed my kids. I was living off the bits that they didn't eat just to make sure they weren't going hungry - it was awful! The food parcel is an absolute lifeline - thank you so much! 

If the funds raised through this appeal exceed what is needed to meet this need, excess funds will be used where there is greatest need within Derby City Mission.
