Down in Berkshire, The Rotary Club of Maidenhead Bridge decided to come together in the spirit of giving to provide festive food parcels to families in the local community.
The club has worked closely with Achieving for Children, a local non-profit organisation dedicated to empowering young people and families, identifying and support families in need.
The festive food parcels, carefully curated by Maidenhead Bridge Rotary volunteers, include a selection of essential items such as pasta, bread, cereal and tinned goods, as well as special treats from mince pies to chocolate selections boxes.
After their club meeting, Maidenhead Bridge Rotarians spent an hour at Maidenhead United Football Club to make the food parcels ready for distributing.
It is estimated around 25 families in the local area will benefit from the food parcel project.
James Ticehurst, President of Maidenhead Bridge Rotary, said: “We are thrilled to partner with Achieving for Children in this meaningful initiative to support local families during the festive season.
“Our volunteers have worked diligently to create special food parcels that we hope will bring a sense of joy and relief to those facing challenges. It’s our way of giving back to the community that has supported us throughout the year.”
Achieving for Children worked closely with Maidenhead Bridge Rotary to identify families that would benefit from the project.
James continued: “As a club one of our aims is to make a positive impact in the community and this project fulfils that objective perfectly.
“Together, we can make a difference and bring a little extra warmth and joy to families in need over the Christmas period.”
