Charity on the road to recovery after break-in


Friday June 5 2015

A charity collection is back on its feet with the help of the council after they suffered a break-in last month.

The Well Foodbank, which was supported by the 100:100 programme, had their base at Wulfrun Trading Estate broken into last month, leading to over £1,000 of damage.

Thieves struck, with the office being broken into, filing cabinets being broken and torn open, and a cash tin being taken with a small amount of money inside it.

Wolverhampton City Council was able to provide The Well with new office furniture in order for them to get back up and running.

The Well Foodbank provides food for both families and individuals who struggle to purchase food for meals. Appeals to provide non-perishables to The Well happen all year-round and the City of Wolverhampton Council has been generous in its support.

The Annual Christmas collection was expanded through the 100:100 programme and there is now a ‘Donation Point’ for all year round collection of non-perishables opposite the Keepers office at the Civic Centre.

An appeal is being made to council employees to consider an extra tin or packet when  shopping to increase this month’s donation and show our support for this organisation that do so much for the people in need in Wolverhampton.
