CooperBurnett is proud to be supporting our local foodbank, Nourish, with its ’12 Days of Christmas’ campaign for people in crisis. Each day team members will be invited to add one item from the charity’s wish list to a central box in our office for 12 days, from the 1 December.

“We have seen an increase in demand for our services of over 100% since the Covid-19 pandemic and we are seeing more and more referrals due to increases in fuel and household bills, furlough ending and the reduction in universal credit,” says Dawn Stanford, Operations Director at Nourish Community Foodbank. “We have been blown away by the financial gifts and food donations that we have received from the local community to support those in need. However, the sad reality is that numbers are rising week on week.”

She continues: “We are preparing to deal with a peak at Christmas where we may be delivering to around 150-200% more people than an average week pre-Covid 19.”

Nourish – which supports people in Tunbridge Wells, South Tonbridge and the surrounding areas - will have a pop-up shop in Royal Victoria Place on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 December from 10am to 5pm for donations

Look at the attached poster to see how you can take part or text FOOD £20 to 70085 to buy a Christmas Dinner for a family in crisis this Christmas.
