A helping hand for our local food bank!
Barnsley Food Bank has received a cash donation from Dragonfly Public Relations as the agency chose to give the money to charity rather than sending Christmas cards this year.
The charity’s Project Co-ordinator Connor Hayes at Barnsley Food Partnership said: “We welcome the donation from Dragonfly PR. Many families are in crisis in this area and the food bank plays a vital role in helping people at what can be a difficult time for them. We wish all at Dragonfly PR a very Merry Christmas!”
Dragonfly PR’s Account Director Marina Wood said: “Christmas cards are soon forgotten about and we wanted to make a difference this year to local people. The Foodbank does an excellent job and we are proud to be supporting such a worthwhile cause.”
Barnsley Foodbank is supported by the national network of foodbanks the Trussell Trust, which works to combat poverty and hunger across the UK. The charity’s ethos is that no one in our community should have to face going hungry. Barnsley Food Bank provides three days’ emergency food and support to local people who are referred to the organisation.
