We have been able to supply 80 families with a total of 8,946 days worth of support since the end of March. This has been possible thanks to a combination of donations, our Globe Run series and amazing monthly child sponsors.
However, with colleges and universities reopening and specific school year groups resuming in October, school fees are required and we therefore do not have the funds to continue this food/essential item support beyond this month. With your help we would love to provide 80 families with food up to the end of October.
Any donation no matter how small will make a huge difference.
