120 parcels in 3 days

In December 2015 we launched our ‘Season’s Eating’s’ appeal which involved a lot of very hard work from a very exceptional group of volunteers doing their bit for charity as part of their National Citizens Service.

Our aim as a Foodbank was to make sure that no family or individual went without a Christmas dinner. After numerous applications and referrals from various different Telford Crisis Network organisations and charities we were soon looking at nearly 100 food parcel requests, which were soon followed by another 40 referrals from the Salvation Army.

On the 19th December, the young volunteers from the national citizens service arrived at the Telford Community Store at 11am and managed to fill and pack every single parcel in just 1 hour!!!

On Monday the 21st December between 9am and 5pm we managed to distribute 120 Christmas food parcels across Telford & Wrekin and couldn’t have done it without the help of the Season’s Eating’s bunch.

Thank you so much to everyone involved!

Lyreco give Telford Crisis Support the Boot

Well not quite, Let us explain…

A gentleman turned up at the Telford Community Store and asked to see us, we soon discovered that this gentleman was in crisis due to a family breakdown and he had lost a lot of his possessions..

Luckily his employer has given him new workwear but he urgently required a pair of proper work boots so that he could stay on the site where he was working..

After a lot of offers that we received from our social media pleas, Lyreco turned up and handed him a new pair of boots just like that!

Telford is full of kind, wonderful, selfless people who time and time again support our cause.

Simply amazing!

Thank you Lyreco!
