It costs thousands of pounds to keep Swindon Foodbank running, with administrative, staff and vehicle costs to meet. Swindon Foodbank is completely funded entirely through voluntary donations and the fundraising efforts of our supporters.
Sponsored events are very popular for fundraising activities. Recently Phil Deaves gained sponsorship for the unique effort of travelling to work by unicycle! His fantastic idea raised £245.00.
Earlier in the summer our own Richard Belsham was part of a 6 man team who took up the Coast to Coast cycle challenge. The sponsorship money is still coming in, but so far the total is looking to be about £1,700.00!
It seems that wheel power is doing well for Swindon Foodbank!
