My story

[p]We are delighted to announce that our charity the LGA Foundation are continuing to support Newcastle West End Foodbank with a recent donation to allow hire of a van to help the charity stockpile much needed food supplies to see its users through Christmas and beyond. [/p][p]We have teamed up with Sound Mind and Body [url=http://soundmindandbody.co.uk/]http://soundmindandbody.co.uk/[/url], in Benton which has launched the first ‘donation station’. [/p][p]Demand for food parcels is at its highest levels in December, January and February, when it takes 14.5 tonnes of food on average each month to meet demand. [/p][p]We are asking local businesses to join our family to support the families in need over the winter months by setting up their own [b]‘donation stations’[/b] for [b]food[/b] collections or [b]cash[/b] [b]donations[/b] for the foodbank, attached is a list of the much needed items. [/p][p]If you’d prefer to help with [b]Christmas meals[/b] which would be served at the West End Food Bank, Lilia Centre, 331 Benwell Lane, NE15 6LX from 3rd December onwards, please arrange delivery on Tuesdays and Wednesdays between 9am and 4pm – what they really need are [b]turkey crowns, ham, chipolatas, vegetables, butter, cheese and eggs[/b].[/p][p]The foodbank can provide food and cash collection boxes and the van funded by LGA Foundation can collect donations or alternatively you can deliver to Lilia Centre, 331 Benwell Lane, NE15 6LX.[/p][p]If you feel that your business and staff could help, please contact Gemma Whaley on 0191 275 3019 / 07525783886 / [url=http://mailto:gemma@nclwefb.org.uk/]gemma@nclwefb.org.uk[/url] and remember to mention that you would like to take part in the LGA Foundation Foodbank Christmas Appeal.[/p][p]However, if you would prefer to make a cash donation please give whatever you can by donating here.[/p][p]Thanks in advance for anything you can do to help and please spread the word to your business and personal contacts![/p]
