Specsavers in Kenilworth is appealing for donations throughout January to support the Warwick District Foodbank.
The store is asking customers to drop off non-perishable items in the box provided in store which will then be distributed to local families in need on behalf of The Trussell Trust. Items that are in demand include long-life fruit juice, UHT milk, ketchup and brown sauce, washing powder or tablets, toothbrushes and shower gel.
A word from the store director
‘Unfortunately, more and more people seem to be relying on food banks and we are keen to show out support,’ said Specsavers Kenilworth store director, Ambreena Bhatti. ‘As well as asking our customers, who are always so generous, the team will also be getting involved and making donations too. Hopefully, it will go some way to helping those in need locally.’
The Warwick District Foodbank is part of a nationwide network of food banks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK. They believe that anyone in the community shouldn’t have to face going hungry. They provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to them in crisis.
