Foodbank supporters enjoyed a fabulous evening on 27 October at the Foodbank Hop - an evening of dancing and great entertainment.
Rock and roll band "Wild" provided a wonderful musical backdrop to the 1950s themed evening, and a group of dancers from Just Jive were on hand to encourage some jive-action on the dance floor. There was a roaming caricaturist on hand to show us a different view of ourselves! And some of us were reminded what food used to be like back in the 50s!
We were blessed with incredible generosity from companies and individuals throughout Swindon, giving us amazing raffles prizes and 11 splendid silent auction lots. Altogether the evening raised a superlative £1,000 for Swindon Foodbank, which will go towards our running costs ensuring we continue to meet the needs of Swindon people in crisis.
Many thanks to everyone involved in the evening, from the planning, donating prizes, to those who came and danced the night away!
