Think Ford supports the Lions Club International in their Food Appeal this Christmas
Think Ford supported the Lions Club International again this year in collecting non-perishable foods this Christmas for those less fortunate than ourselves. We accepted donations at any of our Think Ford locations in time for the food to be distributed prior to Christmas.
The Lion's Club distribute our collections to local food banks and as you can see they are very grateful for this invaluable donation. Their method of assessing food donations is to weigh them and as you can see below the donation to the Farnborough Foodbank was an amazing 83.34 Kgs.
However, that is only half the story. They took half the food donated to The Church of the Good Shepherd Food Larder in Sand Hill which they've been supporting for a number of years. They think the delivery made to the Good Shepherd amounted to just over a half of the total that Think Ford staff and customers donated to their appeal. On that basis the total donation of the Think Ford Christmas Appeal amounted to approximately 170 Kgs of provisions.
This is a magnificent total which the people of Farnborough served by the 2 foodbanks really appreciate. We want to thank all that donated to our appeal and that we hope that you all have a good Christmas & New Year.
