Cycle for Foodbanks

FoodbankCycle14.jpg

I started collecting for foodbanks across the UK in 2018 after being

inspired by Fans Supporting Foodbanks, a group of football fans in

Liverpool.

 

With others, I then oversaw the collection of food and other household

items which together supplied more than 2,000 households with food

and items like nappies, sanitary products and other household goods.

 

During the pandemic we raised more than £1,500 in donations, which

resulted in donations to more than 30 foodbanks across England,

Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.

In January 2021 I decided to raise awareness and hopefully donations 

by cycling the route shown in the map, taking in foodbanks in 

Billericay, Hull, Edinburgh, Skelmersdale, Rhyl, Belfast, Cork, Bude,

Romford and Basildon over a total distance of 2,092.4km.

I started my cycle on 18th February 2021. Links to foodbanks in each

of the locations I am cycling to are also shown below. Please do what

you can to share this adventure and to help raise money for

foodbanks in any location not just those I am aiming to help. 

 

All donations are welcome direct to any foodbank and show that

together we agree there is no place for hunger in our society.
