Christmas Foodbank Collections
We hope you have had a fantastic Christmas and a happy New Year!
As you may already know, before Christmas JOHNS&CO ran a charity foodbank collection in our offices and within new homes developments across London. The response was absolutely overwhelming and all of your kind donations were gratefully received by the foodbanks. We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who made donations and shared our message.
With so much food to deliver it took us several trips and a few hours to get it all to the foodbank!
Residents of Pan Peninsula and New Providence Wharf donated enough food to completely fill the car.
The donations at Embassy Gardens took up all the space under our office tree.
The Charrington Tower collection was looked after by this happy little chap.
And thank you London City Island for the gifts left under the lobby tree.
These pictures are just a small portion of all the food we collected in December, your generosity has helped many people over the holiday period and beyond.
Sadly foodbank usage is on the rise, and during the 2016/2017 financial year, 1,182,954 three-day emergency food supplies were handed out at foodbanks, with over a third of recipients being children.
Obviously, charities need donations all year round not just at Christmas so please do keep donating to your local foodbank and keep an eye out for other charitable events that we will be running throughout the year.
