In the run-up to Christmas this year Charter Tax is supporting the Nourish Community Foodbank ’12 Days of Christmas’ campaign.
Nourish is a registered charity that provides short-term emergency provisions, support and signposting in a crisis to individuals and families within the borough of Tunbridge Wells, South Tonbridge and the surrounding areas. Its mission is that ‘no-one need go hungry in Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding areas’. Since 2012, the charity has provided over 160,000 meals to local people.
We are inviting members of our team to donate an essential food bag item each day into a box in our office.
Dawn Stanford, Operations Manager at Nourish Community Foodbank explains why donations are important: “Last year we had a referral for two teenage girls who were unexpectedly bereaved. They had no extended family and had been surviving for several weeks with limited food. We were able to step in, fill their cupboards with food essentials and, thanks to offers of help from some of our wonderful long-term supporters, we could make sure they had a Christmas Day meal without having to worry about food.”
