S6 Foodbank – Providing emergency food to people in crisis
Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. A simple box of food makes a big difference, with foodbanks helping prevent crime, housing loss, family breakdown and mental health problems.
Our Boxing Day race: Two Turtle Doves donated 50% of the takings to S6 Foodbank donating £550. We also asked runners to bring with them a non-perishable food item. It was a pleasure today to meet HRRC friend and S6 Foodbank volunteer Andrew ‘Wuff’ Woffindin at the Totley pavilion. We filled his boot with our collected food donations, to be prepared into food boxes and given to people in need.
