“Here at the foodbank we don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.”
Ash, manager of Normanton Foodbank
The Normanton Foodbank is a project founded by local churches and community groups, working together towards stopping hunger in the local area. Based in the Well Project, Haw Hill Park, Normanton, they are in the heart of the community helping local people in crisis.
“Everyone at Bluestone is committed to ensuring we give back to the community as much as possible. This includes supporting both national and local causes that we believe in, and the Normanton Foodbank is a fantastic example of this. The project is an essential lifeline for many in our area and we look forward to getting involved in any way we can.”
Vineesh Madaan, managing director of Bluestone Leasing
Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. A simple box of food makes a big difference, with foodbanks helping prevent crime, housing loss, family breakdown and mental health problems.
