This has come about due to great need and the generosity of Sainsburys Matlock. Whilst picking up for the regular Foodbank and food distribution service, Sainsburys donated some brand-new children’s and adults clothes.
It’s another case of local need, partnership and generosity all meeting at the perfect time. Feeding the hungry and clothing the needy, with excellence and dignity, will always be a huge part of what we do. Again, we are dreaming big and starting small and faithfully. We are so grateful to our amazing team and partners in this project.Terry Eckersley, CEO
