My story

[p]I'm running the London Landmarks Half Marathon on 1st August 2021 to raise money for the North Paddington Food Bank. [/p][p]I volunteered for the food bank during the first lockdown, helping deliver emergency food parcels all over North and Central London. I saw first-hand the incredible work that this organisation does every week, bringing food to thousands of individuals and families who would otherwise go hungry. [/p][p]In 2020 in the UK, I never expected to experience people greeting us on the doorstep, saying they were so grateful we arrived because their food had run out 3 days before and they hadn't been able to buy more.[/p][p]Over the course of 2020, North Paddington Food Bank had to cope with a 241% increase in demand due to the coronavirus crisis. During the year they served over 27,500 people, and around 70% of these required home deliveries. The food bank doesn't receive any government or council funding, and relies on donations and volunteers to prevent people in the local community from going hungry.[/p][p]Any amount you can spare would be really gratefully received and will enable the food bank to continue supporting their clients who depend on them. Here are some examples of how your donation could help.[/p][p][b]£5 will buy:[/b] Enough pasta for 20 people for 1 week[/p][p][b]£10 will buy:[/b] Vegetables for 15 people for 2 weeks[/p][p][b]£15 will buy:[/b] Enough toilet rolls, soap and shampoo to supply 30 families[/p][p][b]£25 will buy:[/b] An emergency food package for a family for 4 for 1 week[/p][p][b]£50 will buy:[/b] Fuel for the delivery van for 1 week[/p][p]Thank you for your support on behalf of many grateful Londoners.
