Donating a day’s work for foodbank charity
The Trussell Trust
Brightgreen Chiropractic Wellness Centre in Misterton will be helping some of the most vulnerable people in the local community this Christmas, in a Care and Share in the Community campaign in support of foodbank charity, The Trussell Trust.
Brightgreen Chiropractors in Grovewood Road, Misterton are among members of the UK-wide United Chiropractic Association (UCA) who are donating a morning’s work by providing chiropractic adjustments on 5th December 2020 in exchange for food to the value of the treatment. Clients who prefer to pay for their adjustments in the usual way will have this amount donated to the trust too, while clients not booked for an appointment that day can also donate.
The Trussell Trust has over a network of over 400 foodbanks which provides a minimum of three days’ emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis in the UK. The Trussell Trust reports that the main reasons people are turning to them are benefit delays, low income and benefit changes.
Candice and James from Brightgreen Chiropractic Wellness Centre said: “We are all aware that so many families will be struggling this year for basic food needs and like many others, we are doing our bit to help out where we can.”
The trust has welcomed the support of UCA members and says that the Care and Share in the Community campaign will make a real difference to local people in crisis this Christmas.
The trust has a page on its website with a shopping list of essential food items that can be donated: https://www.trusselltrust.org/what-we-do/
Or people can donate in many ways via: https://www.trusselltrust.org/get-involved/ways-to-give/
Many thanks in advance for your support
