WCI & Charitable Trust Support Local Foodbank to Fight Food Poverty
Winn & Coales International Ltd. (W.C.I.) and the F.B. Coales No.4 (Family) Trust were delighted to support the Norwood & Brixton Foodbank with a £25,000 donation in 2022. The donation has now funded the hire of an electric delivery vehicle and driver for a 12-month period, increasing food parcel deliveries across the borough.
The foodbank, part of the Trussell Trust’s UK foodbank network, is a lifeline for the local community, providing emergency food parcels, advice, and support in times of crisis. Operating since 2011, the foodbank serves all of Lambeth and north Croydon, with a team of dedicated volunteers working to provide much-needed items to families in need.
“The sheer scale of the foodbank’s operations is astounding, matched only by the professionalism and kindness of the volunteers working there,” said Sarah Hashmi, an F.B. Coales Trustee. “We’re overjoyed to support the foodbank’s great work to reach more families facing food poverty in Lambeth.”
W.C.I. is a leading manufacturer and supplier of corrosion prevention and sealing technologies based in West Norwood, London. The F.B. Coales No.4 (Family) Trust was set up by company co-founder Frank Coales, and today has three trustees and is a registered charity (no. 1179856).
