SPARKHILL FOODBANK IN HALL GREEN
THANKYOU SO MUCH FOR ALL THE HELP IN THE LOCKDOWN
When this started, we were worried. We thought with people’s movements restricted AND a lot of other things to think about, we wouldn’t get the incoming food and those in desperate need not be satisfied.
HOW WRONG WE WERE!!
We took a sample six weeks in May and June. During that period we received 1930 kg of food. Averaged out over the 12 weeks from 3 April that comes to 321.67 kg per week i.e. 3860 kg over the 12 week period. This is an immense amount of food for which we are very grateful. We have also received toiletries, cash donations, fresh food. The cash goes to buy yet more food and everything is given out.
WHAT HAPPENS TO IT? During the same period we supported 628 adults, 562 children and gave out approximately 9000 kg of food
SO WHO DO WE THANK? Churches ---other places of worship--- shops – supermarkets – businesses and particularly those individuals who just feel they want to give something.
THE FUTURE? All signs are that this will get worse and with increasing job losses caused by the virus, more and more people will need to seek help
SO, AGAIN,THANK YOU SO MUCH—KEEP SUPPORTING THE NEEDY PEOPLE FOR WHOM WHAT YOU GIVE IS A LIFELINE .
