With the summer holidays fast approaching Lifestyle 2019 has promoted one group of children help a local charity.
Their project will see them tackle food poverty in the town. They intend to do this by collecting a number of tinned food items.
Penny McKenzie, Lola Jacobs, Poppy Jacobs and Will Aspin have also come up with a novel idea. They want to get enough donations that would equate to the height of Beverley’s most iconic landmark.
Speaking about their Lifestyle project the group said;
“We will be asking the local supermarkets to allow us to set up stalls so we can accept donations from the community. As we will be asking the stores if they will be happy to donate some cans of food.”
“Following the presentation that was given by Humberside Police, they highlighted some local charities. One of those was the East Yorkshire Foodbank. As a result of this, we decided to help them.”
Lifestyle 2019 Want Enough Tins That When Stacked Equal Height Of Minster
“The reason for trying to collect enough tins to match the height of the Beverley Minster was to link it to Beverley.”
“East Yorkshire Foodbank has been very supportive. They have agreed to provide us with crates and also collect the tins.”
“While we are happy to take all canned food, there are some which we are particularly keen to get. These include rice pudding, tinned fruit and also tomatoes.”
Lifestyle is an incentive run by Humberside Police that encourages young people to do community-based projects. Children from across the region take part with the best projects winning prizes.
