We're very pleased to have received a letter from the Chair of Trustees at Canterbury Food Bank to acknowledge our Club's support for the charity.
We are all well aware of the unprecedented demand on the Food Bank over the last few months - especially in light of the pandemic and the ongoing effect it has on the welfare of many in our local community.
Martin Ward, Chair of Trustees, wrote a note of thanks for our donation of £500 - this consisted of contributions from individual Club Members for Christmas 2020 and a donation from a single member of £150.00. Early in the pandemic our Club also gave support to the Food Bank and publicised it on our website's home page. Even before the pandemic Members of our Club supported Canterbury Food Bank's work.
Martin, who also happens to be a Rotarian and Past President of our Club, added: "It goes without saying Canterbury Food Bank is incredibly grateful for the donation. The charity is not only seeing a rising demand for emergency food support but it has also taken on the additional financial burden of a new warehouse. Donations such as this provide the charity with the assurance it can face these demands with increasing confidence in the future."
