RVA Surveyors proud to support local food bank this Christmas
RVA have successfully completed a festive food and essentials drop off to St Mary’s Church and community food bank in Haughton Green for those most in need during this Christmas period.
Many families living in the Tameside area are being left with the devastating decision on whether feeding themselves or keeping warm this Christmas is a priority. This time of year is supposed to be a time for joy and celebration, but for too many people it’s becoming increasingly difficult. With the recent cut of; Universal credit, the end of furlough, increased gas costs and a surge in food prices means more families than ever will need to use food banks this winter.
With financial pressures mounting and the ongoing pandemic ever present several people may be fearful of leaving their houses. Consequently, missing out on getting the help they need. Here at RVA we believe the Christmas period is all about giving and supporting the local community during this difficult yearly period and is something close to our hearts.
Anthony Hughes, Managing Director of RVA surveyors, commented, “I am very proud of the great work our team has done to support St Mary’s. We have created dedicated on site drop off points to maximize staff donations and made monthly contributions providing high demand items such as; long-life food, sanitary products and treats for families.”
Following the recent festive drop, we have now successfully delivered a host of seasonal treats and necessities from Christmas Puds to cleansing wipes. Hoping we can help bring a brighter Christmas for struggling Tameside community.
Those wishing to continue the gift of giving can make a donation at St Mary’s Church Centre, Meadow lane, Haughton Green, M34 7GD. The centre is open Monday, Tuesday and Friday between 2 and 4pm.
