Increased demand at Redditch Foodbank meant food was leaving the shelves quicker than ever. The team at Huntleys sprang into action and joined in with their Adlent Calendar appeal. Using the suggested calendar the team were quickly able to fill a box with essential items.
Deputy Regional Development Director Judi Edwards said: ‘I thought it was a great opportunity for us all to give something this Easter, so I made the box up with various pics and the Adlent list of items.
Over the next few weeks the team at Huntleys all joined in and filled the box with the required items ticking off everything required and lots of extras. We even gave the staff at the foodbank a little chocolate Easter bunny & egg wrapped in cellophane each, to say thank you & happy Easter for the work they do for our community.’
With Easter round the corner the foodbank are urging anyone who can to support them by donating items particularly low stock items such as UHT milk, tinned fruit & veg and toiletries. If you can spare a tin (or two!) visit the foodbank at Unit 18, Winyates Centre, Redditch, B98 0NR
