Rugby rallies to help feed the hungry at Christmas

Rugby Editorial 19th Dec, 2018   0

HUNDREDS of food items have been donated by kind Avon Valley School students to Rugby’s Foodbank.

The school’s achievement leader Carole Labreize said: “Our students have again this year donated hundreds of items which will support people in the local community.”

Head teacher Alison Davies said: “This is another wonderful example of the kindness our students are capable of. I thank everyone who has contributed and made this collection a huge success.”

SUPERMARKET shoppers can easily donate to Rugby Foodbank while stocking up for Christmas.

Asda in Rugby has set up a ‘Fight Hunger Create Change’ collection point at the front of the store.

Alison Scrace, Community Champion for Asda Rugby, said: “The generosity of our customers and colleagues is always fantastic and will hopefully go a long way to helping those who need it most in our local community.”

A CLIFTON-based event promotion company is helping Rugby Foodbank to feed those in need at Christmas.

Staff at Envisage Promotions have organised a collection of food items, toiletries and Christmas items to enable families to receive a three day food parcel from the charity.

Director Nichola Clydesdale said: “We feel it is important to support a charity that works locally. We would be delighted to hear from any local companies would like to join us.”
