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!
Bring on 2016
