The Cornerhouse 'gives back' to Nottingham primary school

Kind-hearted Nottingham locals have donated hundreds of pounds worth of food and other essential items to the Old Basford Primary School’s very own food bank, as part of a charity initiative organised by The Cornerhouse, Nottingham’s leading leisure and entertainment complex.

The ‘Robin Hood Gives Back’ event, which took place at The Cornerhouse on Saturday 24th November, saw over 80 members of the public drop-off non-perishable food and other requested items, which were then donated to the school’s food bank in time for Christmas.

The team at The Cornerhouse were inspired by the release of the latest ‘Robin Hood’ film, to follow in the footsteps of the Nottingham legend and give back to the community.

With every donation made towards the food bank, patrons were rewarded with a free ticket for a film of their choice at Cineworld Nottingham.

Charlie Truman, centre executive at The Cornerhouse, said:

“This is the first time we’ve organised such an event, and we’ve been overwhelmed with the response, with over 80 people coming down specifically to donate to a very worthy cause. No matter how small, every donation will make a difference.”

Colette Tee, assistant head teacher at Old Basford Primary School said:

“During the school holidays, many families are faced with rising costs and can struggle to provide enough food. The festive season is also an especially hard time.

“We are grateful to those who have given so generously, and this will really make a difference to families this Christmas.”
