Sunrise Rotary Club deliver mountain of food to Grantham Foodbank
A rotary club has handed hundreds of pounds worth of food and items to Grantham Foodbank to support its work in the community throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
Members from Grantham Sunrise Rotary Club purchased £300 worth of food and essential items from Asda in Grantham and hand delivered it to the foodbank last week.
President Deborah Wylie, along with past president Lez Jones and secretary Irvin Metcalf, joined together as representatives of the club to purchase the food.
Deborah said: “It all came about during our last meeting, which was conducted over our home computers, laptops and phones.
“We decided that we needed to support the community in these difficult times and we were aware that the foodbank was in need of urgent supplies and resources.
“We asked them what they really needed before ordering the produce.”
The trio collected the shopping the following morning and delivered it personally to the foodbank for packing and distribution.
Deborah added: “Since then we have further supported them, along with the other Rotary clubs of Grantham, to those people in most need in our
“It’s wonderful to be able to do our little bit to help others in these times.”
Foodbank manager Brian Hanbury was delighted with the donation.
He said: “A massive thank you to the Rotarians for going the extra mile”.
