Meadow View Day Nursery make festive food bank donation
Parents and practitioners from Meadow View Day Nursery in Newport Pagnell are embracing the season of goodwill by making a donation to their local food bank.
After collecting a grand total of 76 chocolate advent calendars, staff from the day nursery in Westbury Lane hand-delivered the donations to Milton Keynes Food Bank, along with essential household food items for those who need them most.
Meadow View Day Nursery Manager, Elkie Taylor explained;
“Christmas is a magical time of the year but also one of real financial hardship for many. Visiting the food bank was a very emotional experience and we learnt that there has recently been a huge increase in demand for items. With this in mind, we are now going to be collecting items for the food bank all year round. We believe this will also set a great example to the children about the importance of helping others.”
Milton Keynes Food Bank looks to provide emergency support to those in crisis and relies solely on the donations of the public and help of volunteers.
