After a very difficult and unprecedented year, there has been an increase in individuals and families having no choice but to use resources like food banks to feed themselves this winter. Our amazing team at Impact have been collecting non-perishable food items and toiletries, including some Christmas treats, since the beginning of December. After successfully filling up the initial box (and more as you can see in the photos above), all the donations have been safely delivered to the Refresh café and food bank in Bedminster.
Refresh is a local charity based in South Bristol that provide people in need with food, clothing, bedding, and even a shower. Refresh’s mission is to bring positive input and improvement to the local area, and we think they are doing an amazing job and are proud to support them this year.
We hope that all the food our staff has kindly donated is going to help others this Christmas. If you are able, we would like to encourage everyone to think about giving whatever possible to their local food banks and charities, especially in the winter season.
