“The foodbank was there when we really needed it, it was an absolute lifeline.” We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.
The coronavirus crisis has exposed the fact that 1,500 local children are in urgent need of a laptop or internet connectivity at home. They are from some of the most disadvantaged families, living in poverty.
The young people we are helping have families who face the very real choice between WiFi or weekly food shopping. A simple gift of a device today can break the cycle of poverty many have been born into – helping to raise self esteem, boost attainment at school, and improve prospects for employment and pay for many years to come.
