Metro Bank’s High Wycombe store donated several food bags and £500 to help support Wycombe Food Hub as part of its Christmas Community Campaign to spread the warmth this winter. In recognition of the current cost of living challenges. Metro Bank donated £35,000 to over 70 community charities, all of which are local to its stores, instead of having a Christmas tree in each store.
High Wycombe residents and businesses donated some of the items Wycombe Food Hub urgently needed including food, drink and toiletries.
Wycombe Food Hub bridges the gap between retail shops and foodbanks to ensure good food is available to everyone at an affordable price. Unlike a traditional retail shop, nothing in the main self-select area is priced. The Food Hub operates on a model which allows participants to level fill a shopping basket with anything on display for just £3 and there are free community bag of foods available too.
‘’We would like to give a huge thank you to everyone who supported our campaign this Christmas,’’ explains High Wycombe Metro Bank Store Manager, Leanne Fox. ‘’We are really proud that thanks to our customers and donors, we were able to help Wycombe Food Hub continue the incredible work they do and make a difference this Christmas in some small way’’.
