PRESTATYN ROTARY SUPPORT FOR FOODBANK
Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from the current pandemic, redundancy or receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. A simple box of food makes a big difference, with foodbanks helping prevent crime, housing loss, family breakdown and mental health problems.
Prestatyn Rotarians used to enjoy a weekly meeting and a meal at The Beaches Hotel. However lockdown Zoom meetings are now the order of the day, and in lieu of the cost of their meal, members are donating money for the Prestatyn and Meliden foodbank. If you are interested in joining one of our meetings, you can get further details using the contact facility at the top of the page.
Rotary President Martin Cotgreave has now handed more than £4,000 to Heather Norris, who operates the foodbank with her dedicated team of volunteers from the Festival Church in Prestatyn.
On receiving the latest socially distanced cheque a delighted Heather explained that "Demand for our service increased dramatically following the lockdown in March. Even though the furlough scheme was welcome, some families were still struggling to make ends meet. In recent weeks though demand has increased again and we are as busy as ever. We are so grateful for the support of President Martin and Prestatyn's Rotarians. Local residents are so very generous by giving food and many other items, but a cash donation such as this enables us to purchase other essential items that we don't often receive through public donations or the Fareshare scheme."
The Prestatyn & Meliden Foodbank runs from the Festival Church, 200 Victoria Road, Prestatyn, LL19 7TL. They help families in the local area and also liaise with other local foodbanks where needed. If you are able to help, there is a drop-off point at the church, or you can contact the foodbank on 07722 749773 firstname.lastname@example.org.
