I started collecting for foodbanks across the UK in 2018 after seeing the work done by football fans in Liverpool. At the same time I saw a new business in Essex, called Secret Hamper, doing good in the community. These two movements inspired me to start fooDResolution. 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 fooDResolution 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 discontinue fooDResolution in favour of committing to donate to foodbanks by static cycling to foodbanks from home in Billericay to Hull, Edinburgh, Skelmersdale, Rhyl, Belfast, Cork, Bude, Romford and Basildon before returning to Billericay. This is a total of 2,092.4km. I started my cycle on 18th February 2021. Please refer to the table below for progress updates - 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.
