Help us donate 10,000 items and tackle poverty in the UK

Bentons are delighted to announce that they are participating in a nationwide event organised by Relocation Agent Network to collect at least 10,000 items of food (and other daily necessities) for local foodbanks. Taking place between 13 and 20 June, the event - #RANFoodbank10k – will see Relocation Agent Network members across England, Scotland and Wales join forces to help tackle food poverty in the UK.

 

Bentons encourage everyone in the local community to visit their office in Melton Mowbray to donate any spare food items or other vital supplies like toiletries, that they may have. The foodbanks local to Melton Mowbray are in particular need of the following:

 

-Tinned fruit or custard

-Quick pasta meals

-Tinned vegetables and potatoes

-Pasta sauce jars

-Tinned meat/fish

-Toiletries

-Men’s clothing for example jeans, T-shirts, shoes -Bedding for example sheets, duvet covers, duvets and pillows

 

This is the second year that Relocation Agent Network has hosted such an event, which coincides with Agents Giving’s ‘Donate a Food Parcel Day’ on 20 June. Agents Giving is a UK-based charity that works with estate and letting agents and their suppliers to encourage and support fundraising activities.

 

Richard Harrison of Bentons has said, “We’re thrilled to be taking part in this fundraising initiative, especially one that makes such a positive impact to those in need in our local community. Next time you pop to the supermarket, consider picking up an extra item and bringing it to our office during this week in June, we’d love to hit our target of collecting 10,000 items!”
