Dear All at Victoria School
Thank you so much for your recent amazing donation of 257.3 kg of food to the B30 Foodbank. As you probably know we are a completely voluntary organisation, supported by the Trussell Trust. We rely solely on donations from generous supporters and organisations such as yourselves to provide for people, including families, within our local community who, for whatever reason, find themselves in immediate crisis, and are therefore going without. Your gift will be used to help give our families in crisis enough food to make three meals a day per person for three days.
This year has been a particularly difficult one for us and, as you will not be surprised to hear, the numberof local families needing our help has been steadily rising as the financial impact of the Covid 19 restrictions kicks in.
Between March 27th and October 23rd our volunteers worked alongside Birmingham City Council , The Active Well Being Society and Bournville Village Trust to put in place a system of emergency food deliveries to those local families who had been referred to us. From 23rd October, however, we have been able to resume face to face distribution of food parcels (with appropriate Covid 19 safety precautions) at Cotteridge Quaker/Friends Meeting House on Watford Road.
We would like to reiterate how important your donation will be in helping us to make a significant difference to individuals and families who would otherwise go hungry and on their behalf we thank you wholeheartedly once again for your support. As a token of our thanks I am attaching a Certificate of Appreciation, which I hope you will be able to print out and display somewhere where your students can see it.
