Following the success of our two previous Christmas Food collections this year we decided to gather donations to give to a local charity called Feeding Families. Emma, one of our regular Pilates clients volunteers with this charity so it's reassuring to get an insight into how they work. This is a message from Emma.
Feeding Families is a charity based in North East of England that offers
support, hope and security to those experiencing food poverty. Working
closely with other organisations and agencies, we ensure that thousands of
families in desperate need have access to our Emergency Food Boxes and
support packages. At Feeding Families, we don't think anyone should go
hungry. We believe everyone has the right to be able to feed themselves and
their children. Feeding Families offers more than just food, it shows
compassion to those in crisis. Last year we supported over 27,000 people
over the festive period.
This is the list of items that each Christmas food box contains.
Your donations will be taken to Feeding Families’ Blaydon warehouse where volunteers will sort it then pack it into boxes containing one of each item on the list. The boxes are then collected by or delivered to our partner charities who will distribute them to the families they have identified as being in need this Christmas.
Please visit the website to learn more about how the charity works.
Please bring all donations, however large or small to the studio by Friday 2nd December 2022.
Thank you for your generosity,
