We did our Fare Share to help tackle food poverty!
5 runners ran to help the FareShare Cymru in Cardiff.
- Saturday, 23rd of November 2019
- Led by Ellen
This weekend 5 of us GoodGymmers became #foodheroes, by helping to collect food for those in need.
The food we collected in Canton's Tesco Metro will go to frontline charities and community groups that they supply and be turned into delicious meals for the vulnerable people that they help.
But far from being hard work, it was truly inspiring, from the Tesco staff who helped us settle in, to FareShare Phil who came to thank us, to the shoppers themselves of course who donated so generously. That includes two people too busy to shop who handed over £10 each! (and which Emily spent in store, buying even more supplies).
As Marie so beautifully put it: *"Some lovely people getting involved and donating. A family got their 3 kids involved and they each put something in the trolley." *
I think there's something in my eye 😢
