Cawarden and its client, nmcn, has delivered today donations to support the Swadlincote CVS Food Bank to help the charity ensure that nobody goes hungry this Christmas.
Cawarden is currently working on a project in the Derbyshire town of Swadlincote as part of the Swadlincote Regeneration Route project.
Recognising that the demand for the food bank has dramatically increased since the start of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Cawarden and nmcn colleagues joined forces to provide a helping hand.
Including everything from breakfast cereal, baby food and soups to mince pies, selection boxes and children’s books and activity packs, parcels were hand-delivered by representatives from Cawarden and nmcn. Petra Parker, Service Coordinator at South Derbyshire CVS, was at the food bank to accept the donations.
With any donations received before the festive season, the food bank will be able to provide additional Christmas treats with each food parcel that volunteers put together for those in need.
The impact of the pandemic on the lives, health and welfare of local people has been significant and demand for the food bank is growing. It was heartwarming to see the hard work and dedication of the staff and volunteers working tirelessly to help the local community. We hope our donations will go some way towards helping those in need this winter.”
