Helping families in need

A phone call late one Friday afternoon was a plea for help for a Swindon based family who had just had a bereavement. A young mother had died and the children's aunty and grandmother had accepted them into their home to care for them but they did not have enough food to feed them until their Social Worker had helped them claim benefits to support them all. Swindon Foodbank were happy to ensure they had enough food to see them through the first few days of what was a terribly sad situation.
