Club members are committed to supporting our local foodbanks, particularly in the current cost of living crisis. Over the last 3 months we have been donating items of food, toiletries, nappies etc. Since October, the total cost of donations has been approximately £400 and this includes donations of money as well as items. Recently, we were visited by a speaker, Jonathon Lees, (CEO) from the Good Company who run the local foodbank in Epsom and Ewell. You can read about Jonathon’s talk here Tackling poverty – Jonathon Lees
In the photo above, Veronica and Jenny made a quick trolley dash to ALDI one evening and then delivered their shopping to Epsom and Ewell Foodbank the next day. They provided items which were in short supply. A weekly list is often produced by foodbanks so that people can provide exactly what is needed.
