The Trussell Trust runs the largest network of food banks in the UK, giving emergency food and support to people in crisis. Fourteen million people live below the poverty line and in the last year close to 3 million emergency food parcels were distributed to people in crisis.
Huge thanks to Tesco customers for their generous donations over the past 3 days at our Tesco Winter Food Drive! It’s been lovely to meet and chat to you, and it’s been humbling to see our trolleys filling up, thanks to your contributions!
Special thanks to Tesco Extra Chesterfield Community Group Tesco Champions Jane and Karen for all their extra help and support! As always they have gone above and beyond in preparation for this annual event!
We are hugely grateful to our amazing volunteers who made this event possible! Thank you to everyone involved from start to finish, coming in to hand out leaflets and greet customers for 2 to 4 hours shifts! We are lucky and blessed to have such an incredibly committed and dedicated team! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts
We’d also like to say Thank you to Costa Coffee for providing drinks for our volunteers; that was really kind of you, and you kept us warm and in high spirits!
It’s thanks to all our donors, volunteers and supporters we have been able to collect lots of crates of food from this event, which we will get sorted and distributed in 3 day emergency parcels for local people in crisis. You have ALL made a huge difference! THANK YOU!!
Update: we can confirm we received £281.79 in cash donations from this event too! Thank you again!
