Commenting on the latest contribution to the Trussell Trust foundation, Sheffield Operations Controller, Adam Yates stated:

It was another amazing response from all the colleagues and couriers in Sheffield, especially with everyone feeling the recent pinch of fuel, energy, and food price increases. We can only hope we are making a difference to those in need.

 

In the last 5 years, the need for foodbanks in the UK has increased by 81%, making donations more important than ever.
