Massive thanks to our valiant volunteers and our super-generous supporters

We had our busiest ever pre-Christmas session at the Food Hub on Wednesday 22nd December.

In the course of a double session lasting more than five hours, our team of volunteers packed and delivered food parcels for 136 clients and family members across the south of the borough – a grand total of 1,224 meals.

Huge thanks to EVERYONE involved…and a special thank you to our unbelievably generous supporters who brought us a mountain of donations in November and December – festive treats and vital, everyday basics alike.

A brief selection of your donations is pictured below. Thank you one and all!
