12 Nov Charity Announcement: Ely Foodbank
With 2019 just around the corner, we have some exciting news to share! We will be working closely with Ely Foodbank as our chosen charity over the next 12 months.
To kick-start our partnership, we have donated £500 ahead of Christmas. With it being one of their busiest times of year, this will help referred individuals and families with nutritionally balanced food parcels and other supplies.
Ely Foodbank is a local charity devoted to combatting poverty and hunger.
Last year, the Foodbank distributed 2,428 emergency food supplies (45 tonnes of food) to those in crisis in the Ely area.
Following the news of the donation, Cathy Wright, Project Director at Ely Foodbank, commented:
“We are thrilled to have this support from Neaves & Neat going into 2019. They are a local company who have really grasped an understanding of our work, making it a valuable partnership for us. We are looking at new premises for our food storage and this donation is an enormous help”.
We look forward to continuing to support Ely Foodbank with donations, fundraising events and volunteering throughout the year.
