Care home residents donate to local Foodbank in Harwich
A Sanctuary Care home in Harwich showed acts of kindness last week by donating food and toiletries to their local foodbank.
The Low Road home pledged to support the community by acting as a collection point for Harwich Foodbank for the past four weeks.
Support Harwich Foodbank is so worthwhile
The Sanctuary Care home’s activities assistant Ann-Marie Greenhalgh said: “It was a real team effort, everyone came together – all the staff, residents and families wanted to show their support for Harwich Foodbank, which is fantastic as it’s such a worthwhile cause.”
“The work the Harwich Foodbank volunteers carry out is so valuable to so many and that is why we wanted to support them. It is so heart-warming to know that Don Thomson House has done our bit for those in need.”
Resident Patricia Clarke: “It’s lovely how much we have all collected, I really hope it helps out a nice family.”
