LIGHT UP SOMEONE’S CHRISTMAS
Posted in Events | 08/12/2016
As the pace of life grows more frenetic and the demands on our time increase, family and friends become ever more important.
That’s why this month, we are collecting food donations in our Rybrook Bentley showrooms for The Trussell Trust’s Cardiff and North Bristol Food Banks to make Christmas that little bit more special for some of the most deserving people in our community. And we’re inviting customers, friends and family to help us support this fantastic cause.
Bring any non-perishable food items into our Cardiff or Bristol showrooms and load up our Bentley Bentayga ready to donate food to the local foodbanks in Cardiff and North Bristol.
ABOUT THE TRUSSELL TRUST
The Trussell Trust supports communities and churches to open foodbanks across the UK.
The foodbanks are part of The Trussell Trust’s network of 428 foodbanks, working to tackle food poverty and hunger in our local communities, as well as across the UK.
The Foodbank Network was founded in 2004 after four years of developing the original foodbank based in Salisbury. Since then The Trussell Trust has helped communities work together to launch foodbanks nationwide in a wide range of towns and cities.
In 2015/16, The Trussell Trust’s Foodbank Network provided 1,109,309 three-day emergency food supplies and support to UK people in crisis. Of these, over 400,000 went to children.
As a network, they want to see more people helped out of crisis and fewer people needing foodbanks in the future. That’s why The Trussell Trust and local foodbanks are working together to develop new ways to help people out of crisis through programmes like More Than Food.
