I will keep this brief as I know that we are all bombarded with charity appeals at this time of year. Fareshare Sussex are seeking donations to assist them in their work this Christmas and into 2018.
FareShare Sussex’s ‘More than Meals Christmas Appeal’ highlights how, although they are focussed on providing food which is turned into meals for people in need by brilliant charity members, with your support they are able do lots more than that:
- Help the environment by preventing edible food from unnecessarily going to waste.
- Help disadvantaged adults through volunteer programmes.
- Help charity members attract new clients and provide even better services.
According to members, FareShare’s food also helps to:
- bring people together over shared meals, reducing social isolation.
- educate through cook and eat sessions, developing important life skills.
- engage clients with other services, helping break the cycle of poverty
- improve overall well-being, making people happy as well as satisfied through being able to access foods that could not be provided without our service.
Fareshare are extremely proud that they can do this through their service. But they rely on the support of the community to keep their work going strong.
It would be amazing if you are able to help with a donation, a fundraising activity and/or a share round your networks. Social media shares are great but so are direct asks/emails to those people & businesses that you feel this cause might resonate with.
Here are links to existing posts on Facebook & Twitter for easy sharing, and below are some drafted tweets you could use – or of course feel free to promote in your own words, explaining why you choose to support Fareshare Sussex.
