Proventure charity donation 2014 – York Foodbank

For the 3rd consecutive year we are delighted to have donated £500 to the York Food Bank, raised as part of our annual Christmas card email campaign. We don’t send Christmas cards – for every person we email we donate £1, and for every reply from our clients and contacts we receive we also donate a £1. Thank you for all your support in aiding us to contribute to this excellent cause.

We know that in difficult times essentially food and shelter are the most crucial parts of our lives. Steve and Mark live in and around York, so were able to do a whole lot of shopping for food, drink and basic toiletries and then deliver the consignment to York’s storage facility. It is easier of course to just donate the cash raised, but we like to meet the volunteers and of course being recruiters are nosey to learn more about the operation and see it in the flesh. The summer school holidays are the most difficult time for many families with children who normally would receive a free school meal.
