Sewell on the go’s Big Local Harvest collecting for local food banks for a third year running

To support those in the local community who are most in need, Sewell on the go is once again teaming up with East Hull and Beannie Street food banks to run their hugely successful Big Local Harvest this year.

For the full month of October, the teams at Sewell on the go will be collecting non-perishable donations at all of our 13 stores across Hull and the East Riding. Whatever is donated, Sewell on the go will match to double the donations so the local food banks can support as many people as possible this coming winter.

Thanks to the generosity of Sewell on the go customers, the team have donated over four thousand items with over £10,000 to the food banks and other charities over the last two years. With the growing fears about the cost of living crisis, it’s expected that the demand for these services will be higher than ever, so this year, with the help of their generous customers, the team hope to collect more than ever before.

Robbie Keane, who founded the food banks following his own personal experience with homelessness, desires to give back to the community which supported him, said:

“The donations from the Big Local Harvest will help so many families – it’s clear, that from year to year, how dedicated Sewell on the go are when supporting their local communities.

“This generosity of the public never fails to amaze me; it will be life-changing for some families, some of whom haven’t had food for a long time.

“I find myself lucky that I don’t need to use food banks, but for those who do, it’s vital and so important. These food parcels will make such a difference to the families.

“On behalf of the thousands of families we’re able to support with your help, we cannot thank you enough”

The items requested this year are:
• Pasta
• Sauces
• Tinned food
• Tea
• Coffee
• Long life milk
• Toilet Roll
• Nappies
• Feminine products

*please note, all items must be in-date*

If you can spare anything from your shopping basket, or have some items you’d like to donate then please pop by one of our stores and drop them off. Sewell on the go will be matching anything in there so your donation will be doubled.
