A picture of Worcester charity of the year

Worcester charity of the year

We’re very proud to be supporting Worcester Foodbank over the next year, to help make a difference to the lives of local families, who are experiencing hardship.

Over the past five years, staff based at our Worcester offices have been inspired to raise almost £40,000, to help local causes through their Charity of the Year scheme, and this year they have chosen Worcester Foodbank.

Staff are getting involved in lots of fun activities to support the charity; raising money, making donations of food, toiletries and toys, as well as volunteering to help out packing up food parcels.

To kick-start the fundraising, we donated a grant of £10,000 to the foodbank, from our community investment programme. The programme aims to make a positive difference to lives of Sanctuary’s residents and the neighbourhoods they live in.

Worcester Foodbank provides a lifeline to local people and our own residents as well. Last year, the charity provided more than 6,000 emergency food parcels to support local families, for up to three days with over 60,000 meals.
