After more than two-and-a-half years supporting the community, the Cromer Community Fridge and Larder, at Merchants’ Place, is in need of your help.

The facility provides emergency food support, essential household items, cleaning products, toiletries, baby items and more to local people in need.

But donations have decreased in the past few weeks and they are in danger of the shelves running low.

Hannah Rolph, from Merchants’ Place, said: “We have been very lucky to have received monetary donations in order to keep the fridge and larder stocked. However, this is now coming to end and we are finding it even more difficult to keep this much-needed service running.

“Helping more than 25 families and individuals a day, we are seeing an ever-increasing demand for emergency help.”

She asked anyone having a spring clean or cleaning out their cupboards to think of them and make a donation.

“If you are able to support us by buying items from local shops to donate, that would be a fantastic help. We can also accept monetary donations to buy items to keep the larder stocked,” she added.

All sealed items which are in-date and with the ingredients clearly stated can be donated at Merchants’ Place on Church Street. Email info@merchantsplace.co.uk or visit www.merchantsplace.co.uk for more details.
