Story

This Easter whilst many of us will be enjoying a special meal and a few Easter Eggs with family and friends, sadly there are many people in the UK who will struggle to put any food on the table. The problem of UK hunger is  a growing one. 913,318 people received 3 days emergency food from a Trussell Trust foodbank in 2013/2014 compared with 346,992 in 2012/2013.

A grateful single parent in low paid work who was recently helped by the Trussell Trust says “It's a constant battle. Some days I don't eat at all. We don't have treats: that grinds you down after a while. This year I bought a pair of shoes for the first time in 6 years: that was my treat. You work hard and have nothing to show for it.”

By donating the cost of an Easter Egg you will help The Trussell Trust to launch more foodbanks in communities that need one.  Thank you very much for your support.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

It makes me very angry that you need to do this necessary work in one of the richest countries in the world. It is a great stain on the UK's reputation. However, I applaud you. Keep up the good work.

Thanks to the powerful, rich and greedy we are back in Victorian times. Food banks are necessary to stop starvation. Like others, I want to help.......and stick it to the scumbags at the Daily Mail!
