One in five of the UK population live below the poverty line, and before the financial crisis in 2008 even the concept of food banks were virtually unknown in the UK. Then in 1997 The Trussell Trust was founded, and in 2004 they established a franchise model for UK food banks.
Research published in 2017 found there were now over 2,000 UK food banks, with a number of food banks in the Chichester District, including the local charity Stonepillow providing vital support for the homeless.
Cathedral Wealth Management have always supported Stonepillow and other local charities in and around the Chichester area, and being an avid listener of the local radio station Spirit FM, recently got involved in their Tonnes of Tins appeal.
The aim of the Tonnes of Tins appeal is to raise awareness for the food banks across West Sussex and collect as much tinned food as possible. The total raised was 5,500, of which Cathedral Wealth Management donated 250.
All these tins will go to help struggling families relying more and more on food banks in West Sussex, and were donated to Chichester District Foodbank, Bognor Regis Foodbank, Littlehampton District Foodbank and Stonepillow Homeless Charity.
