A large number of items were generously donated by students, families and members of staff, as part of a drive to raise awareness of this important local charity, which supports many people in Beverley and the surrounding area.
Tins of food, dried pasta, rice, tea and coffee were amongst the basic staples that were donated, along with biscuits, soup mixes, long-life milk, shower gel and soap.
This was also an opportunity for Longcroft to give something back to the community and for all students to consider others during the festive season. It is hoped that those who supported the Food Bank will continue to do so independently throughout the year.
Longcroft expressed their gratitude to all who took part, they said;
“Thank you not only to everyone from Longcroft who donated an item. Also thanks to those who volunteer their time to support the East Riding and Beverley Food Banks.”
“Their work is making a vital difference to the lives of many people within our community.”
The East Yorkshire Food Bank accepts items all year round. – if you would like more information about the work of the visit their web site.
