Generous staff at three veterinary surgeons in Derbyshire are helping the homeless in the run up to Christmas.

Carrick Veterinary Group branches in Chesterfield, Clowne and Matlock are running a 'reverse advent calendar' where every member of staff is donating one non-perishable food item for every day of December.

It is expected nearly 500 food items will be collected.

They will be donated to St Michael's Soup Kitchen, a charity which provides food and drink to the homeless in Chesterfield. Pictured are Brian Sargeant, the clinical director of Chesterfeld’s Carrick vets, and some of the staff making their donations.
