Following the excellent fundraising efforts from each of the three houses during the Harvest Challenge, Isleworth & Syon received an email today (Friday 21 November) from the Foodbank at the Bridgelink Centre, Ivybridge, which received our donations two weeks ago. The email read:
A Huge Thank You from the Foodbank at The Bridgelink Centre, Ivybridge
Over the last few months, we have seen a considerable increase in the number of people being referred to the foodbank on the Ivybridge Estate (part of Richmond Foodbank). As a result, prior to the Harvest services, our shelves were regularly being emptied out. We are hugely grateful, therefore, for your large donation of food. It is wonderful that you’ve been able to support us and, in turn, support those who come along to the foodbank at what is a very desperate time in their life.
From all the team, and those who have been given encouragement and hope during financial crisis,
Isleworth & Syon would like to reiterate this appreciation, as your kind donations have been an immense help to people in desperate need.
