08 May 2014

We've collected more than 100 items to donate to The Besom foodbank in Taunton. The Besom 'provide a bridge between those who want to give money, time, skills or things, and those who are in need'.

Employees donated items such as powdered milk, tinned vegetables, spaghetti, tinned fruit, tea and coffee, tinned meat, pasta sauces, rice, noodles, jam, cereals and biscuits.

Vicky James, Individual Empowerment Team Manager said, ‘Our Individual Empowerment Team refers residents who are in particular need to services such as foodbanks all year round.

It’s great that our staff have got involved and donated so many items for people who need them.

We’re now holding bi-monthly collections, donating to a different foodbank every time, to eventually cover all of our operational area across Somerset and the West of England.”

The collected items are being donated to The Besom today.
