Blog 2020-81 Thank you from The Trussell Trust

As you may know, Long Eaton and the rest of Derbyshire's swimming clubs came together in our event 'Step Sunday'. We raised a total of £433, smashing our target of £100!

Here is a message from The Trussell Trust:

"From all of us at the Trussell Trust, we'd like to say a huge thank you for all your fundraising. Thank you so much for all your hard work and for your generosity and compassion for choosing to do this. Congratulations are also in order for your incredible fundraising total! We appreciate every penny you've raised and every conversation you have started. Your support has never been more vital. During April 2020, food banks in our network saw a 89% increase in need compared to the same period last year, with a staggering 107% increase in emergency food parcels for children. You have helped the food banks in our network achieve a great deal in the last few weeks as they face this increased need and adjust to new ways of working. On behalf of not only the team here at the Trussell Trust, but also from each and every one who uses food banks, thank you.

With gratitude from the Trussell Trust Fundraising Team"

Well done and thank you to everyone who took part!
