Over the past few weeks one of our Directors Imran Khaliq has been volunteering to work with John and his team at Newcastle Food Bank to help those in need.
The Newcastle Food Banks offers emergency food assistance to people in the west end of Newcastle; which is one of the most economically and socially deprived areas in the North East.
Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. A simple box of food makes a big difference, with foodbanks helping prevent crime, housing loss, family breakdown and mental health problems.
''We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK. We thank Gainford Group for their contribution and kind support through these challenging times." - Newcastle Food Bank
Gainford Group have donated £10,000.00 to help fund supplies.
