The grant was applied for by Bro. Danny Benn of Pilgrim Lodge
He generated the request for a grant from the serious concern that the viability of this Food Bank was seriously in doubt as there were no other income streams and the demand in these difficult times was increasing. An increased demand was anticipated if further redundancies occurred after the ending of the furlough scheme in October.
This donation has done many things:
Provided cash to keep food going to the ones in need.
A boost the staff and helpers who were feeling despair.
A feeling of joy for me knowing that we had helped others.
A hope that the community of Horsforth will follow up with more help for their less fortunate
The boost to the volunteer’s morale that the grant has made is enormous - and came at a perfect time.
