Giving for Gedling Food Bank Appeal

Please pledge your support at: www.spacehive.com/givingforgedling

The Mayor of Gedling Borough Council, Cllr Sandra Barnes has launched the ‘Giving for Gedling Food Bank Appeal’ to support our most vulnerable residents during the Coronavirus outbreak. 

We’ve been inspired by the response from residents and know that many of you want to help. We’ve created a crowdfunding project so that residents and businesses whose circumstances allow, can donate to provide additional community support for those who are most in need.

All Gedling Borough Councillors have kick started the fund by each pledging £250 from their Councillor Community Grants Fund, giving a total of £10,250, but we are asking you to help us match that amount and raise a further £10,000 and help us reach our target of £20,000.

All donations will either be given directly to registered food banks who support residents across the borough and will oversee the spending of the money on much needed food supplies, or be used by Gedling Borough Council to purchase food and essential items for distribution to those food banks or directly to our residents who are most in need. 

So many of our community have already come together to help each other and we want to continue these fantastic community efforts.
