Merry Christmas From AFH to 
Droitwich Food Bank

Story

Staff at AFH Group have delivered a massive 105kg of food to Droitwich Spa Foodbank.

The food was donated by staff, who also raised more than £2000 for Cancer Research UK this year.

Set up in 2014, the foodbank works with a number of different agencies, such as Citizens Advice, children’s centres and health visitors to help people who are struggling to put food on the table. Its website also features monthly recipes for those on a tight budget.

Around 70 volunteers help out, and last year they distributed more than 1100 three-day food parcels to people in Droitwich Spa and the surrounding area.

Foodbank volunteer Debbie Ash said: “This food will be distributed to needy people as chosen by local social services, doctors, schools and 30 other agencies.

“This year there have been more people asking for support, but we have also seen a greater amount of donations. By this point in the last 2 years we’ve fed 700. This year we’re at 900 already.”

AFH charity co-ordinator Jenny Read said: “It was amazing we collected so much. It took us ages to get all the wonderful stuff colleagues had donated into the cars! And it’s great to know all that food will be helping make Christmas a little bit better for people who otherwise might not have had enough to eat.”
