B30 Foodbank would like to thank all pupils, students, staff, and families at University of Birmingham School for the Christmas donations provided over the festive period. Below we share a message of appreciation and thanks from the B30 Foodbank Volunteer Team. Thank you once again to everyone who contributed to, packed parcels, organised, and dropped donations off to the centre.
“We would like to say a huge thank you to your staff, pupils, and students for your Christmas donation of 225.8kg of food to the B30 Foodbank, and as a token of our gratitude I am attaching a certificate of appreciation, which I am hoping you will be able to share with your team.
We hope that you have had a successful term, and have all managed to stay fit and healthy. As you can imagine, this year has been a huge challenge for us, as many local families have found themselves in crisis for a huge variety of reasons, including many whose lives have been affected by the fallout from the Covid pandemic.
These past two weeks (December 2021) have been our busiest of the whole year and in that fortnight alone we have given out 7110kg of food to 460 people, (helping 204 families), so you can see just how grateful we are for all donations. It is solely down to the kindness and generosity of donors such as yourselves, that we are able to help bring a little relief by providing enough food to make three meals a day per person, for three days. So, on behalf of all the B30 Foodbank volunteers and more importantly, all our clients, we say once again a resounding, heartfelt thank you!
Wishing you all a very happy and healthy and restful festive season, so that you are ready to start the new term full of energy and enthusiasm.”
