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 1,9 million three-day emergency food supplies were distributed to people in crisis.
A huge thank you to Cliveden National Trust who donated the Easter eggs that would have been used on their Easter trail which had to be cancelled. Slough Foodbank were able to give these to our clients over the Easter period as a little chocolatey treat in addition to their 3-day, nutritionally balanced food parcel. However, we had more than we required, so it was a privilege to be able to share the love this Easter and donate eggs to Wexham Park hospital and we even had a few to give to staff at Charing Cross Hospital.
Here is a response from one of our volunteers:
“I have been asked by my son and his colleagues at Charing Cross Hospital to say a very big Thank You for the Easter eggs last week. They were very much appreciated and came at the end of a few very difficult days. They are all working 12 hour shifts and the eggs seemed to give them a lift at a time when they were needed. Thank you to Slough Food Bank again.”
Thank you to Cliveden for their donation. Thank you to our dedicated and hardworking NHS staff. Thank you to the Foodbank volunteers who made distributing these eggs possible.
