A charity which delivers food to elderly people across Sheffield has issued an urgent appeal for a FREEZER – after their own stopped working meaning loads of meals have defrosted.
Sheffield Churches Council for Community Care tweeted a video yesterday showing how a problem with their freezer had caused stocks of ready meals to defrost.
They were intended for elderly people who have just left hospital – and the charity urged anyone with a replacement freezer to come forward fast so they can still meet deliveries.
The charity tweeted: “Oh no! Our freezer has stopped working and defrosted all the emergency ready meals that we take out to older people who have been discharged from hospital with no food!
“Looking for a freezer if anyone has one they wish to donate #Helpsheffield.”
