I have recently made contact with a couple of local companies who have been extremely generous and donated items for the food hub/community fridge
Corbetts The Galvanizers based in Halesfield donated a huge number of toiletry items which I collected on Friday and took to the Community fridge on Monday. This donation was kindly arranged by Sophie Williams the General Manager at Corbetts.
I have been in contact with Quorum engineering based in Hadley who have pledged to provide monthly support to the Hub/Fridge which is also amazing and they are going to help set up a Facebook page with us so we can promote the project and get the word out to many more families who may want to use it.
The support of such large companies is brilliant and we are extremely grateful for their help.
I am also continuing to ask families and staff if they are able to possibly donate even one item when they do their weekly/monthly food shop – this is so important to those families who use the fridge/hub as it provides them with food/toiletries that they may otherwise not have.
I am hoping to set up a box outside the office and possibly on the KS1 playground for anyone wanting to donate any items to make it easier for people to do this.
We are always in need of toiletries/tinned curries/meatballs/pies/hot dogs/cereals etc
Many thanks for your support with this
