Items the food banks need to provide an extra helping hand this festive season are:
Donate your unused pens and stationary. Daniel Lloyd a local Didcot student, is helping to provide stationary to schools and groups throughout Oxfordshire and regions throughout the UK. Daniel has helped 342 individual students in need of school supplies and raised £30,000. Markers For Mindfulness was set up in January 2020 to help with school budget cuts while helping to highlight and spark conversations about staff and student mental well-being.
Donate an unused laptop or tablet. The Computers For Schools initiative organised by Stephen Brown, founder of Stephen J Brown Consultancy is to fundraise and purchase computers and tablets to donate to schools, who have many children that are sadly lacking access to IT devises at home and school within our local communities. To date 1212 tablets and computers have been distributed to schools with a staggering £123,455 raised.
Donate to receive a cost of living guide. Estate agents across the UK have helped to raise more than £7000 in less than two weeks to support their local food banks and community help groups. The money has been raised thanks to a ‘free’ guide created by a popular industry partner, the Estate Agent Content Club. Coping with the Cost of Living is filled with money-saving tips, ideas, and information on where to access support and help.
