Help us to help others with food supplies

Community Hub

In these challenging times, many more people and families are finding themselves facing food poverty. This is placing greater demand on the essential supplies that food banks are able to distribute.

We’re asking for help from local businesses and organisations that might be able to help provide relief to those affected by the Coronavirus, particularly those able to donate fresh food, especially fruit and vegetables. Any other non-perishable food, toiletries, vitamins and pet food will also help to ensure the support needed can be maintained. If you have any supplies or support you can offer please email:

Staying safe on Nottsbus services


To maintain your safety when travelling on one of our Nottsbus services, we've put in a series of extra measures.

While some services will continue to run during peak times, others will continue to be on-demand only.

Our priority is to keep you safe, so please only travel if essential and do not travel if you are unwell or living with someone who is self-isolating. We also encourage you to wear face coverings where possible and always respect social distancing 👍
