The Rotary Club of Wellington (Shropshire) have been supporting Telford’s Foodbank ever since it began nearly 8 years ago.
We exist to make sure that no-one need go without the essentials they need to keep themselves and their families clean, clothed, warm, fed & healthy.
The total overall contributions made by Wellington rotary since the start of lockdown comes to a total of £3373.50 plus £187.50 in food donations.
With extra financial support we are able to keep up with our PPE supplies to keep our team safe, make the hub a safe space for visitors, keep our vehicles on the road and running costs of food storage and distribution just to name a few examples.
Since lockdown back in March our project has distributed 3044 food parcels, fed 6185 adults and children, and has provided over 55,665 meals.
Please support our cause by buying lottery tickets via our fundraising page!
Telford and Wrekin Community Lottery is an exciting weekly lottery that raises money for good causes in Telford and Wrekin. All good causes supported by the lottery will benefit Telford and Wrekin and its residents.
Play the lottery, support Telford and Wrekin – it’s that simple!
Tickets for the lottery cost just £1 per week. Each ticket has a 1 in 50 chance to win a prize each week, with a top prize of £25,000! That’s a better chance of winning than the National Lottery or the Health Lottery!
Each ticket will consist of 6 numbers and each number will be between 0 and 9. There will be a draw every Saturday night when a 6 digit winning combination will be picked. Prizes will be given to players with tickets that match the first or last 2-6 numbers from the winning combination. Match all 6 and you win the JACKPOT!
We are pleased to announce that Telford Crisis Support has secured £33,000 a year funding from Telford & Wrekin Council for six years (until 2023)
The support from Telford & Wrekin council will enable us to provide support from our three sites in Leegomery, Newport and Woodside, and to distribute parcels to those in need in the community. Whether it’s from Oakenagtes to Overdale, Coalport to Crudgintgon, there’s not a single inch of Telford & Wrekin that we won’t cover.
No one need go without the basic essentials that they need to keep themselves and their families warm, fed, clean, clothed, warm and healthy.
From this Thursday until Saturday 2nd December, We will be collecting food at TESCO on the wrekin retail park as part of the annual neighbourhood food collection.
So far Tesco has helped to raise an incredible 46 million meals for people in need. This includes customer donations as well as the 20% top-up from Tesco and food donated to permanent collection points.
Please, if you are planning a trip to the shops this weekend, please spare a tin or two for your local Foodbank!
