The Trussell Trust Food Bank has been awarded a £1,000 donation from Vodafone UK. The charity collected the Vodafone Community Connection Award after the store team in Hamilton chose the deserving cause.

Launched in 2014, Vodafone’s Community Connection Awards have already made a difference to more than 170 local communities across the UK. Selected by local Vodafone staff and aimed at supporting local causes with a £1,000 donation, the awards have been used to help fund everything from new equipment for soup kitchens and day centres for the elderly to helping people with disabilities take part in sporting activities.

The Trussell Trust Food Bank supports more than 1,200 food bank centres across the UK – helping them provide nutritionally-balanced emergency meals for people in a crisis. The £1,000 award will be used to buy food parcels, as well as hats, scarves and gloves for those in need.

Isobel Graham, Trussell Trust Food Bank Manager for the Hamilton District said, “We wish to express our gratitude at being awarded the £1,000 Vodafone Community Connection Award. A little thought and kindness can sometimes be worth more than any amount of money. The kindness shown by Vodafone is amazing, with this type of donation making the difference between someone having a meal or going without.”

Tracy Sutherland, Vodafone Store Manager in Hamilton said, “The Trussell Trust Food Bank supported over 5,000 people from April to December last year. The situation in the UK would be a lot worse without the fantastic work they do. It was an absolute pleasure to meet some of their staff and I hope they can continue to help as many people as possible in need.”
