STAFF at Alfreton hardware store Gee Jays, on Nottingham Road, have handed over donations from customers and suppliers to homelessness charity, Framework.

The money was used to help pay for Christmas meals for the homeless and is part of an ongoing campaign to raise £1,500 to provide traditional home comforts to people who can feel alone, isolated and forgotten.

Gee Jays owner and director Rebecca Nichlos-Green said: “Our customers and suppliers have been really generous with their donations.”
