Announcing our 10 Deserving Doorsteps
Back in December we asked you to help us choose ten Deserving Doorsteps to receive free milk and essentials this winter. Entries came in thick and fast, and choosing our winners wasn’t an easy task: so many wrote to us with wonderful nominations.
However, we are delighted to be able to announce our ten Deserving Doorsteps and those who nominated them. A huge thank you to everyone who took part. We hope you’ll join us in congratulating these worthy winners!
