Welcome to the first No Child Goes Hungry Newsletter
The story so far...
The No Child Goes Hungry scheme was initially set up to provide food parcels for children for the two weeks over Christmas for families in need. But thanks to the generosity of local businesses and individuals in the community who made donations of vouchers totaling £3,900.00, the scheme has been able to continue throughout January and February and will be able go on to provide food parcels throughout March and into April. So far we have helped in excess of 50 families and 117 children with a total of 503 food parcels.
Due to the success and need, Swan Youth Project have gained funding for a 1 day a week co-ordinator for this scheme, which links perfectly with our family support. We have also held a competition for a new logo, which has been designed by one of our young people, Hollie aged 14. Thanks Hollie you did a great job!
A huge THANK YOU!
A huge thank you to each and every one of you that has donated vouchers, food, hygiene products and time. Thank you to the many local businesses and individuals who supported the scheme (too many of you to mention) and some of you anonymously! Also thank you to those in the local community who have donated food and vouchers. Not forgetting our wonderful volunteers who give up their time week after week to shop and then pack the parcels. Without you the scheme would not have been the success it has been so far!
