This year, the Fluid Family decided to do away with secret santa, instead supporting our local communities. Find out how we supported the vital work of The Trussell trust who support the UK's foodbanks...
Run entirely by volunteers, foodbanks in the UK are part of a network of foodbanks supported by the Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger UK wide.
They provide three days of nutritionally balanced emergency food and support local people who are referred to them in crisis. At this time of year, it’s more important then ever that everyone has a proper meal and can enjoy Christmas whatever the circumstances.
The Cornwall team raised £75 for the St Austell foodbank which otherwise would have been spent on needless presents in addition to a food donation point we had set up in the office.
This fundraising enabled us to donate a car boot full of food that the foodbank needed as a priority. The Manchester team also provided the Salford foodbank with a similar package of foods the foodbank required at this time of year.
