Conwy Foodbank supports people struggling with food poverty and hunger in the the Conwy county. It is run by dedicated co-ordinator, Tony, but the funding for his post has sadly ended. We need to continue to provide this service, and need your help and support in order to do so. Thank You!
Conwy Foodbank is one of several projects hosted by ARC Communities Ltd, a not-for-profit organisation serving disadvantaged people and communities in several ways across Conwy and Denbighshire. If you have contributed to Conwy Foodbank in any way in the past, you may have met our friendly Foodbank Coordinator, Tony who, for the past 2-years has managed the project and its volunteers, picked up donations and delivered parcels from various bases; he has been the face behind the many calls and queries into Conwy Foodbank.
Sadly, the funding needed to employ Tony comes to an end in July 2017, and unless we can generate some additional income, the paid coordinators post will be lost to us completely. We are therefore in the process of looking for continuation funding streams for this project, no easy feat given the current economic climate. So, we are looking outside the box and are hoping to generate through a sponsorship scheme whereby we are seeking individuals, groups and organisations to commit to sponsoring Tony monthly.
The amount you sponsor is entirely up to you. We need to generate approximately £1,200 per month to cover salaries and project costs, so anything you can commit to will be gratefully received.
If you are interested in supporting our coordinator scheme, please help support this campaign. ALL funds raised will be passed on to Conwy Foodbank – the only amounts we have to deduct is any financial costs associated with banking – so if you transfer funds directly, rather than using PayPal or other payment gateway, there will be ZERO fees deducted.
May we take the opportunity to say a wholehearted thank you on behalf of Conwy Foodbank for your continued commitment to provide those in crisis in the County of Conwy with this valuable service. We couldn’t undertake the work we do without your assistance.
