The Foodbank is pleased to announce it has been chosen as one of Bristol Rovers FC’s charity partners
Speaking about the appointment of the charity as the club’s second charity partner, Commercial Director, Tom Gorringe said, “Last season, we were delighted to work with our supporters on the “Gasheads Against Food Poverty” initiative and saw first-hand the positive impact that it had on those in need within our local community.
“We are committed to doing all we can to ensure our partnership supports the charity – whether that means raising awareness of campaigns and events or to offer more hands on practical help.
“North Bristol Foodbank offer a beacon hope to those who are forced to use such means when times get tough.
“This time of year can be extremely busy for such charities and we hope we can provide assistance at such a demanding period and beyond”.
Stewart North, Chair of Trustees said “After 6 years of running the foodbank locally we continue to want to stand beside those who are struggling with crisis situations that result in going without food. It is not acceptable in these days but we want show compassion and offer hope that things can change. We are grateful the opportunity of this partnership to raise the profile of the foodbank and offer people ways to support others in their community. Let’s do this together!”
