Radwell International has broken existing records helping to collect a huge amount of food, drink and non-perishable items to donate to Swan Bank Methodist Church, Burslem as they continue their 5th annual Food Drive for those who need it the most during the festive season.
Volunteers at Swan Bank help individuals and families who have fallen on bad times, many of whom are homeless, unemployed, disabled or retired. They open their doors and donate food to vulnerable people from the area who otherwise might be without food and company at this time of the year. Besides donating food, they never turn anyone away and cook Christmas dinner for over 400 people on Christmas Day, sending meals out with volunteers for those people who are housebound).
This year, Morrisons, based in Festival Park and Leek (Staffordshire) generously supported Radwell's Food Drive by collecting non-perishable items for a month leading up to Christmas.
Radwell have been able to donate hundreds of pounds worth of tinned food, dry pasta, rice, confectionary, cereals, tea, coffee, laundry products, toiletries and other long-life produce. The food drive was headed by the company’s marketing team and supported by employees who have themselves faced a challenging year.
