For many years Investec has formed partnerships in its local boroughs of Hackney, Newham and Tower Hamlets to help schools, start-up businesses, social enterprises, charities and other causes to support local people.
Before the pandemic, more than one in five families in the UK lived in poverty. Today, with conditions exacerbated by unemployment, even more people need help.
Feeding people is the greatest priority. Therefore, Investec has committed to providing the funds to ensure the supply to food banks across the three London boroughs for 12 weeks. Deliveries started on Monday 6 April and Investec will provide over 52,500 essential food items every week through to the end of June. And we won't stop there. We're extending our support to food banks across the UK.
