12 Days of Christmas
We were delighted to open up our Tunbridge Wells office on Saturday as a donation point for Nourish Community Foodbank’s 12 days of Christmas campaign.
The campaign saw supporters buying up to 12 items (or fewer) across the first 12 days of December, and then dropping them off to designated collection points on Saturday 16 December.
As our offices are in the centre of town and accessible by car, many donors were able to easily deliver their donations straight to our door. Members of the Town & Country Housing (TCH) team volunteered to give up some time over the weekend to help make sure that everything ran smoothly and that all the food donations could be collected.
Kerrina Hook, Asset Administrator at TCH, said: “It was an absolute pleasure to be part of this, and I’m delighted that Town & Country Housing was able to act as a collection point.
“We had so many items of food dropped off on the day, and everyone was so positive about the support that Nourish is giving to the local communities. There was definitely lots of Christmas cheer in the air, and we heard from so many people how they were delighted to have the chance to donate to this cause.”
Viv Packer, Trustee at Nourish Community Foodbank added: “We are incredibly grateful for the support of TCH in giving us this central town space to collect food donations. The charity is facing a huge food shortage and the donations we received at the offices will help us to ensure nobody goes hungry this Christmas. Thank you to the team of TCH volunteers who kindly gave their time to help us on the day, we really appreciated it.”
