AWE’s ‘tonne-up tucker’ for Christmas

AWE employees donated 1.2 tonnes of festive food this December to the Basingstoke Foodbank for its Christmas Hamper scheme. The goodies were wrapped in nearly 200 boxes and will be distributed to vulnerable families and individuals by the charity. Foodbank administrator Jenny d’Ambrosi said: “A big thank you to the AWE employees for their amazing donations!”

Basingstoke Foodbank provides nutritionally-balanced emergency food and support to people in crisis, through working in partnership with local communities. From January to November this year, its staff, volunteers and community donations have fed 3,120 people – of whom 968 were children. The foodbank is currently distributing an average of 2.8 tonnes of food per month to people in crisis in the Basingstoke and Deane region.
