We just want to say….

14th May 2020

In times of unprecedented need, we have been truly humbled by the weight of food donations and fundraising efforts on our behalf. Many have donated anonymously or have done so without us having the opportunity to catch a name.

We are still overwhelmed by the amount of support that we need to provide but wanted to take this opportunity to thank the following groups and individuals for their invaluable support.

 

Thank you to The Indigo Trust, The GLA Trust and London City Airport Community Fund who have generously provided us with significant donations.

 

Thank you to Nick Buckland, who has organised a tremendous on-going fundraiser on our behalf with huge enthusiasm and energy.  The Greenwich Food Bank Fund has to date raised an incredible £22,574, soaring past the original target of £10,000 when he launched the fund at the end of March.  We cannot thank enough, Nick and each and every single individual who has donated, for their generosity.

 

 

 

Thank you to @BryanPlumb, who generously dropped off half a dozen bags of invaluable food supplies to our Eltham HQ.

 

When a visit to a supermarket is no longer straightforward, customers at ASDA in Charlton have been so very generous in donating two trolleys of desperately needed supplies to our efforts. Thank you to ASDA for their Community Colleague initiative.

 

 

 

Thank you to @LondonPropLicensing for their very generous donation of £250.

 

Thank you to Grace Refugee Aid, who have very kindly provided us with the donation of space at their facility in Lee during this emergency. This has enabled us to receive, sort, package and distribute food parcels.

 

 

Thank you to Emma, a volunteer at the Greenwich Food Bank, who set up a collection point outside her own home in Blackheath, to collect much-needed food and healthcare products. We are very grateful for her initiative at this time.

 

 

 

Thank you to 261fearlessgreenwich women’s running club, who committed to run 200 miles in 2 weeks to raise money for the Greenwich Foodbank to help support local families through these difficult circumstances.  All of their runners are running alone and have agreed to safe and respectful running practices.  They have to date raised a wonderful £816.
