LDF were pleased to be involved with local charity Flintshire Foodbank again this Christmas supporting a scheme that provides emergency food parcels to local people in need.
The Foodbank idea was created by Carol and Paddy Henderson in 2000, who provided emergency food to the local community from their garden shed and garage, since then this project has continued to grow.
During the festive season LDF employees, with support from local business VLS, have collected a variety of food items for the festive appeal, including tinned meat and fish, to pasta, confectionery and pet food. LDF employees have also volunteered with the scheme throughout the year, helping to raise awareness of the campaign and representing the charity by collecting donations at local supermarkets.
Sue Leake, Project Manager, Flintshire Foodbank commented, “The LDF team who helped with collections were absolutely fantastic! They worked hard to make this a great success and we couldn’t have done it without them. In total they managed to collect 3,163kg of food, a great result!”
