Throughout November and December, the North West has been full of festive cheer but one particular hotspot of seasonal goodwill was created by the amazing staff and customers from WCF Fuels North West.
Full of winter warmth themselves, the WCF Fuels NW team decided to organise a collection for Morecombe food bank to share that warmth with others who need a little helping hand this Christmas.
As Pippa Scott of WCF Fuels NW explained: “Morecambe food bank is the most amazing project that is funded by local churches as well as community groups. Their amazing volunteers distribute over six tonnes of food each month and the amount continues to grow, with over eighty regular volunteers supporting and helping local people just in the Morecambe bay area alone.”
The Morecombe food bank is one of a network of 428 around the UK run by The Trussell Trust which aims to tackle food poverty and hunger in local communities wherever it exists. With Morecambe only a short distance from WCF Fuels NW, the team decided this would be the ideal location to support with their collection.
With incredibly generous support from its team, WCF Fuels NW delivered over £400 worth of essentials to the food bank as well as some amazing funds raised by its fantastic customers.
Gemma Hogg, general manager at WCF Fuels NW was delighted with the team effort: “It’s a wonderful donation and for such wonderful people.”
