Trussell Trust to benefit from Cardwave donations

5th October 2016

Cardwave’s £100 charity donation will benefit The Trussell Trust this month. The charity was chosen by Lewis Williams, Procurement and Quality Administrator, who commented: “This is a charity close to my heart because I have friends who would have otherwise been unable to survive if it were not for the help of their local foodbank. Unfortunately, food poverty in the UK only seems to be increasing  – Over the past 6 years, food bank usage in the UK has increased by over 2500%, with the number of ‘3-day supply packs’ being issued increasing from 40,898 in 09/10 to a staggering 1,109,309 in 15/16.”

In addition to making a financial donation staff are being asked to bring in a donation from their weekly food shop throughout the month of October which will be donated to the  foodbank in Devizes.

Thirteen million people live below the poverty line in the UK, with individuals going hungry every day for a range of reasons, from benefit delays to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income.

The Trussell Trust’s 400-strong network of food banks provides a minimum of three days’ emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis in the UK. In 2015/16, they gave 1,109,309 three day emergency food supplies to people in crisis.  The Trussell trust are also working with the food banks to provide new services like money advice and Fuel Banks to help people to break the cycle of poverty.
