Richmond Rotary Club
Peter Heslop is the Community Project Manager for StoreHouse, which is Richmond’s non-profit food bank which is based in the Influence Church in the town.
This week he gave a talk to the Rotary Club of Richmond explaining how Storehouse routinely provides food parcels for around 60 people a week who, through whatever circumstances, are not able to provide adequately for themselves or their immediate family.
Peter Heslop said: ‘Demand for support from our foodbank has increased recently and we expect it to continue to increase. We have been providing a service in Richmond for ten years now and there is no doubt that the success of StoreHouse is a tribute to the generosity of Richmond people.’
Before presenting Peter with a cheque for £600 on behalf of Richmond Rotary Club, Rotary President Emma Fulton said: ‘We recognise the important role that foodbanks play in the lives of so many people from all walks of life and we are delighted that Rotary is able to support this vital local service.’
