When we began helping with the vital work that food banks do, we said that if we needed to prolong our initial 12 week support plan, we would. And now, as the UK slowly starts to return to some sort of normality, we won’t forget about those who can’t afford to buy the basics.
We are pleased to confirm that we have extended our support of these food banks for a further 12 weeks.
A few weeks ago, Dorking food bank confirmed Investec’s support had provided sufficient stock and that we could redirect their deliveries elsewhere. So while donations are no longer required in Dorking, we have redirected the surplus to the food banks we’re supporting in Bristol and Sheffield who still remain under intense pressure.
Deliveries will continue until mid-October, ensuring the food banks remain fully stocked throughout the school holidays and past the point when many other donations may have ended.
Throughout this time we’ve been so grateful to all of our colleagues who have given their time to help ensure the deliveries are made. We’d especially like to thank Emily Groom and Hanna Caplin who’ve been the relationship managers for Dorking food bank.
The desire to make a meaningful contribution to the world we live in is at the heart of Investec’s values, and underpins our aim to be a responsible corporate citizen.
Unfortunately we weren't able to speak to Dorking food bank, so here is a message from Alison at the Woking food bank.
