Prime Minister David Cameron has praised the Advertiser’s Feed Our Families food bank campaign.
Our Editor Martin Hutton caught up with Mr Cameron when he visited 10 Downing Street in London, where he explained about our campaign to help struggling families put food on the table this winter.
He took along a copy of the Eastwood and Kimberley Advertiser to show the Prime Minister at a reception for editors.
Mr Cameron said our campaign fitted in with his ‘Big Society’ ethos of everyone helping each other.
Afterwards Martin said: “I was keen to tell the PM about what we’re up to in Eastwood and Kimberley and how well our Feed Our Families campaign is going thanks to our readers.
“The appeal, which has seen us link up with the town’s food bank to hand out food parcels to families this Christmas, is one of the most important campaigns I feel we have ever run.
“With your help we can make sure that families in Eastwood and Kimberley – and they may well be our neighbours and friends – who are struggling to even feed themselves, have a good Christmas.”
