Camborne, Pool and Redruth (CPR) Foodbank has received a donation of £500 from Specsavers Camborne and Specsavers Redruth to fund 20 Christmas family food hampers.
A word from Specsavers
Alan Honeybone, Specsavers store director, said: ‘We were keen to team up and support a local cause this Christmas and one that benefits our local community.
'It is unacceptable that any family should be without even basic food at Christmas time. We heard about the work that Don and his team were doing and were keen to support in any way we could.’
Don Gardner, director of operations at Transition CPR, said: ‘CPR Foodbank is our biggest project. It is only with the support of businesses like Specsavers Camborne and Specsavers Redruth that we can continue to support people in need.
‘The need for a foodbank has increased tremendously in the last 18 months and this figure is set to keep rising, not only in Cornwall but nationally.’
