We are excited to announce that ThoughtShift’s annual Reverse Advent Calendar has smashed the previous year’s target with the help of our local community and businesses.
Nick Graham-Smith from Whitehawk Foodbank passed on his message of thanks to everyone who participated and donated.
“We at the Whitehawk Foodbank would like to thank you very much for your generous donation to us before Christmas last year. The donations weighed in at a massive 102.12kg! Thank you so much for thinking of us. We rely each week on the kindness and thoughtfulness of individuals and organisations like yours to have the stock to feed those in need and show them love in a practical way. Your donations will have been a great blessing to people at what can be a very difficult time of year.
2017-18 has been our third year of operation as a foodbank and by far our busiest as we have seen numbers increase on the previous year by 40%. However – more importantly – our donations have increased by over 50% on the year before, and we thank you so much for the part you have played in helping us to fight hunger in our city”
It Doesn’t End There
Whitehawk foodbank doesn’t just need our donations over the Christmas period. They run a vital life saving service throughout the year and donations are always welcome.
