Donation will help foodbank

Rob George 7th Apr, 2021

A CITY legal firm has donated £1,000 to support the work of the Worcester Foodbank as it continues to support thousands of people and families across the city.

Through its Corporate and Social Responsibility (CSR) Committee, mfg Solicitors, which has offices on The Tything, has donated the four-figure sum to help ensure the much-loved Foodbank can upgrade its IT equipment and keep providing a range of services which have been impacted due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Launched in 2012, the Lowesmoor-based Foodbank’s mission is to end hunger and food poverty in Worcester.

Last year, its 70 volunteers provided food parcels which supplied in excess of 130,000 meals and helped more than 8,000 people.

Tim Clack, compliance officer at mfg Solicitors and Worcester Foodbank volunteer, said: “Worcester Foodbank is a popular charity across the firm with many people regularly donating food and other items.

“It is such an important service for thousands of families and its importance has been brought into sharp focus during the past year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“It is a huge operation to manage behind the scenes and therefore our donation will play a role in improving and updating the Foodbank’s IT systems and office equipment so they can keep providing such an amazing, seamless service.”

Foodbank manager Grahame Lucas said: “I would like to thank everyone at mfg Solicitors in Worcester for this donation.

“As a charity we rely on support from a range of sources and local businesses here in Worcester are a big part of that.

It will help us continue to improve how we operate behind the scenes as our range of services continues to grow.”
