We are pleased to publish our latest impact report for the charity for April 2022. We like to keep the General Public informed of our activity so they can see how their donations and time assist us in our charitable aims and objectives.
The CARE Project
The CARE Project didn’t distribute as many food parcels as last month, but this was due to the Easter Break, which saw the charity close for a week to give staff and volunteers a break. Bag a Bargain continued to see increased usage. Anecdotally, more people are reporting that they are now dipping into their savings to meet the cost of living, and cutting down on their outgoings as much as possible. Bag a Bargain helps to do this with regards to food shopping.
- Parcels Sent out – 126 (-16%)
