For some, this Christmas isn’t about presents, decorations and trees. Some will struggle to put food on the table at all. You can help this weekend if you are doing a shop in Wrexham’s Tesco.
The Trussell Trust is partnering with Tesco and Fareshare to launch the biggest ever nationwide food collection for people in crisis. By donating a can or two of food at Tesco today or tomorrow you will help stop people going hungry.
Tesco is the first national supermarket to partner with foodbanks and this is The Trussell Trust’s first ever nationwide supermarket collection. As well as hosting the collection, Tesco will also ‘top-up’ your food donations by 30%, making your gift go even further. Tesco has also pledged to provide longer term support to Trussell Trust foodbanks and Fareshare.
All food collected at the Wrexham Tesco will be redistributed via the Wrexham Foodbank to local families in need.
Collections are ongoing this weekend from 9am today until 10pm today, and 10am until 4pm tomorrow.
@wrexham Food bank is in Tesco Cefn Mawr this week end too. Help feed people in need.
