DMU Local supporting the community this Christmas

2020 has been an unprecedented year that has shaped the very way the world runs and could run for a long time. This has also meant people are now suffering financially and people in and around Leicester need our support more than ever.

DMU Local have set up a digital fundraising option to allow donations to be paid electronically. This is a great option for staff and students where a physical donation of items is difficult or not possible. Anyone can donate and every pound received will be used by Leicestershire Cares, who are a charity run organisation that aim to reach the elderly, isolated and vulnerable across Leicestershire.

Where will my donation go?

Funds generated will contribute towards the Christmas ‘Together We Care’ Packages which DMU Local are sponsoring £1,000, will aim to lift the spirits and spread joy to some of those that are having a challenging time due to Covid-19. The packages will be distributed to vulnerable adults and the elderly who have been affected either financially or through isolation and loneliness, along with those in need of wellbeing support.

The Christmas packages will be created and delivered by the Leicestershire Cares network, items which your donations will contribute to (but not limited to):

  • Festive Chocolates and biscuits
  • Tea, coffee, hot chocolate, sugar
  • Scented candles
  • Face masks
  • Christmas cake, crackers
  • Gloves, hats, scarf, socks
  • Hand sanitiser, shower gel
