Trust’s successful free meals initiative

The free meals initiative delivered by the Community Trust during the half-term break has proved to be a great success.

Dozens of lunches are being provided each day to children who qualify for free school meals, following support from Jacksons The Bakers, Lifehouse Church, Tesco, The Corrugated Case Company and Print Digital Media.

Co-vice chairman Martin Thacker, who has helped distribute the food at the HUB at the Technique Stadium, said: “I think this is a fantastic testament to a community willing to work together to make a difference. I think that shows how much the community around here cares.”
