Metro Bank’s Aylesbury store is collecting donations to help support the Trussell Trust as part of its Christmas Community Campaign this winter.
The Aylesbury Foodbank has been helping people locally providing over 248,000 meals since opening. Part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust which is a charity working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK. The charity’s vision is for a UK without the need for foodbanks as one in five in the UK live below the poverty line.
Aylesbury residents and businesses can donate the items the charity is requesting for Christmas at its Market Square store: Tea bags, jars of instant coffee long life UHT milk, soup, long life fruit juices, tinned fruit, tinned veg, instant mash, and jam.
“As a community bank our colleagues and customers want to support those most in need this Christmas through this fantastic local charity,” explains Aylesbury Metro Bank Store Manager, Shaan Bangar. “We would encourage everyone to give a little this Christmas – even one tin can make a difference. I want to thank everyone in advance for their generous support.”
Donations can be made at Metro Bank’s Aylesbury store at 45 Market Square, Aylesbury, HP20 2SP. The store is currently open Monday – Saturday 8:30am - 6pm. Sunday: 11am - 5pm.
