Foodbank says thank you for Easter donation

A recruitment agency has donated more than 260 Easter eggs to Banbury Foodbank.

Plus One Personnel in High Street has collected the eggs with the help of businesses and individuals.

The donation will help the foodbank continue its work to help hundreds of underprivileged families in Banbury.

The handover of the Easter eggs was made to the foodbank last Friday. Claire Kingsbury, CEO of Plus One Personnel, said: “We wanted to help those families whose Easter won’t be about eggs and chocolate, it will be a struggle to put even the most basic of food on the table.

“We are proud to support the Banbury Foodbank again and have collected chocolate treats to add to each foodbox to help put a smile on the face of an underprivileged child this Easter.

“We were astounded by the generosity of the business community and aim to donate even more throughout 2014.”

Banbury Foodbank is based at the People’s Church in Horse Fair and is run by a group of volunteers.

Sarah Williams, foodbank manager, said: “Times of celebration like Easter can put a bit of extra pressure on families and individuals who are already struggling to put food on the table when there just isn’t enough money in the pot for extras like Easter eggs for their children and special food that many of us would take for granted. We are grateful to Plus One Personnel for their generous donation to this very worthy cause.”
