Incredible, fantastic, outstanding, unbelievable — they are just a few of the words I can think of to describe you, our readers, who have helped to make our Feed Our Familes campaign a huge success.
Thanks to you, the food cupboards of many local families will look a bit more full over the Christmas holidays by virtue of your generous donations.
We linked up with the inundated food bank operation at Eastwood Volunteer Bureau in Wellington Place just a few short weeks ago to ask you for help in boosting local larders.
The response was nothing short of humbling.
Food started to fill our office and businesses such as Sainsbury’s Local and Barclays bank got on board.
We have now delivered truckloads of food to the food bank and it has already been distributed to local families to help them put food on the table at Christmas.
Those who have supported our efforts — and the dedicated volunteers at the bureau — embody the Christmas spirit and we salute you.
