  • When a rucksack is more than a rucksack….

    “You’ve saved the day!” said the owner of this rucksack.

    It’s wonderful that volunteers from New Cross Community Church, Sutton-in-Ashfield are working hard to help families like this one struggling to cope with emergency situations and being referred to our Ashfield and Mansfield Children’s Referral Centre.
