Julian Supports Tesco Neighbourhood Food Collection
November 27, 2015
Julian has welcomed Tesco’s ‘Neighbourhood Food Collection’, after lending a hand with volunteers today at their Express store in Strensall.
The collection is Tesco’s seventh and is being run in conjunction with the Trussell Trust and FareShare. It is taking place between 23rd November and 5th December in all of the supermarket chains smaller stores and between 3rd and 5th December in the larger outlets.
In July, Julian helped with Tesco’s last collection, which enabled 3.6 million meals to provided to those most in need.
Commenting, Julian said:
“I congratulate Tesco, the Trussell Trust and FareShare on the work they are doing to support the most vulnerable in our society and I particularly thank the hardworking volunteers giving up their spare time to get behind this very worthwhile cause.
“While it is sad that anyone should feel the need to visit food banks, I am pleased the so many people are willing to get behind the good work these charities are doing by donating spare food so generously.”
