Those involved with the Guides expressed their thanks to Tesco for their support on the night. The Guides not only helped a local charity they also gained valuable life skills.
Commenting on the visit, Helen Pook, 4th Beverley (St Mary’s) Group Leader said;
“As part of our winter programme we have been learning about period poverty and foodbanks.”
“As a result of this and the Guide programme of gaining Skills for Life, the Guides spent time in Tesco shopping to a budget for products that the East Yorkshire Foodbank is short of.”
“Each of our six patrol teams was given a list and budget of £15 to purchase all the items on the list.”
“They had to decide on the best value for money, budgeting for what they can afford and purchasing the items.”

“We had a great evening learning new skills and also promoting a lot of discussions. We would like to thank Tesco for supporting us in our activities.”
As a result of the initiative, £90 of items were donated to the foodbank. Tesco will also top this up by 20% meaning the East Yorkshire Foodbank will benefit from £108 worth of supplies.
Richard Newby, Development Manager at the Foodbank was thrilled with the Guides efforts, he said;
“This donation will help us to continue our work feeding people in our local community currently in crises.”
