We’re delighted to announce support from the Bernard Sunley Foundation for our Christmas appeal, with a generous donation of £10,000.
This is a fantastic donation that has given the campaign a real boost, and will doubled with match funding, enabling us to help more families to access fresh fruit and veg during the tough year ahead.
The need for our Rose Vouchers for Fruit & Veg has sadly never been greater as more families struggle to afford the food they need, due to lost income this year as a result of job loss or childcare issues, and access to their support networks and services diminishing. This has left many families unable to make vital healthy food choices.
Bernard Sunley Foundation are a new funder of our charity, who recognise the value in our work of helping families access a healthy diet and supporting local markets. We’re thrilled to be working in partnership with them.
“The Bernard Sunley Foundation is always particularly keen to support charities that make a real difference to the communities in which they operate. It is clear that the Alexandra Rose Charity wants the very best for the communities that it serves and that is helping families and young children at a crucial point in their development. We wish them all the success with this campaign and in the future.”Sue Davies, Director at Bernard Sunley Foundation
