LWYL winner supports local food bank
4 December 2015
Lisa Grant, winner of the Good Neighbour award at WDH’s Love Where You Live Awards, donated her £500 prize to help St Catherine’s food bank in Wakefield.
St Catherine’s Food Bank helps to support people in Wakefield facing financial hardship who need the assistance of the food bank. They have provided people in the local district with over 4,000 food parcels so far this year, as well as offering people hot lunches for free to those in need.
Jonathan Williams, who also works as part of the team at St Catherine’s, said: “It’s forecast to be a bad winter as well this year so even more people will need the help of our emergency food store.”
Lisa who manages St Catherine’s, a purpose built church and community centre, said: “We rely heavily on donations so the £500 really helped. It was fantastic to win the award but it really is a team effort and I work with an amazing team of people.”
