‘Substituting Christmas Greetings for Festive Donations…’
This year, Haydon Wick Parish Council made the decision to donate to the Swindon Food Collective instead of sending corporate Christmas Cards. Each year, the Council spends up to £200.00 on seasons greetings, however this year, funds were diverted to a greater cause.
Chairman of the Council, Councillor Vinay Manro said that “while we still want to send festive greetings to all of our contacts, we decided that a donation to the Swindon Food Collective would benefit members of our local community and we hope, make a real difference to someone’s Christmas”.
Over the last year the Swindon Food Collective has seen demand for their assistance increase in many areas with one zone particularly being the Haydon Wick and surrounding SN25 area.
