Welsh Builders’ Merchant Makes Contribution to ‘Fill a Van’ Scheme for Foodbanks
South Wales builders’ merchants, Robert Price, has participated in the ‘Fill a Van Scheme’ which delivers much needed food and resources to local foodbanks around South Wales.
With the recent cost-of-living crisis, families across the UK have found themselves facing growing bills and rising energy prices. Foodbanks have become a vital and much needed lifeline for many people each day.
To meet the rising demand, foodbanks rely on individuals and organisations for donations.
Robert Price recently contributed towards the ‘Fill a Van Scheme’, created by Westdale Midlands, which transports a large number of goods from local pick-up points and delivers them to food banks nationwide.
They generously donated a £250 voucher to the ‘Fill a Van’ Scheme, enabling additional supplies to be purchased for the foodbanks.
Trish Bishop, Director at Westdale Midlands, commented:
“Westdale are very grateful to Robert Price Ltd and all of our suppliers that kindly contributed to our ‘Fill a Van’ project.
“Initially we were planning to fill just one van of food to be donated to Food Banks. Due to the generosity of suppliers, staff and sub-contractors, we actually filled FIVE vans and were able to donate to food banks in all the areas we are currently undertaking works. A huge success!
“Thanks again Robert Price”.
Molly Pike, Marketing Director at Robert Price, said the following of the scheme:
“We are so pleased that we could play a part in delivering this large donation to food banks.
“The ‘Fill a Van’ initiative is a wonderful idea, and we hope that it makes a difference to those in need during these unpredictable times.”
Robert Price is well established in the South Wales area and has made similar donations in the past.
“We would like to thank everyone involved in this scheme for the amazing work that they do. It has been a big success and we hope to continue our charitable contributions in the near future”.
