Oswestry petrol station has been busy, once again, raising money for a local charity. Thanks to the wonderful team and generous donations from customers, the total has reached £509.09 in just three weeks.
Speaking to the local newspaper, Linda – assistant manager at Oswestry petrol station – said, “We do a charity fundraiser here each year. We wanted to raise money for the foodbank and give back to the community.”
Over the last five years, the Oswestry team have raised over £5000 for various charities, as well as more than £9000 for Children In Need.
Kath Davies, a volunteer and trustee at the Oswestry foodbank, said that the donations are needed at this time of year. She added, “This donation will go towards our Christmas stock and it’s greatly appreciated. We’re currently busy packing 120 Christmas hampers for recipients. The need for foodbanks has noticeably increased over the past few years, but thanks to the phenomenal generosity of the community and businesses in the area, we are able to give people some food this Christmas.”
We’re so proud of the team at Oswestry and of the incredible difference they will make to people’s lives this Christmas.
