Supporting those who may be forced to choose between getting food on their tables and putting on the heating

Hunstanton Town Council has recently been awarded £3,500 funding from Norfolk Community Foundation through the Norfolk Household Support Fund to help combat hunger this winter by supporting those who may be forced to choose between getting food on their tables and putting on the heating.

The Mayor of Hunstanton Cllr Adrian Winnington reported “Hunstanton Town Council is very pleased to have received this funding, it has enabled us to help those in our community who may be in need of a little financial assistance this winter to put food on their table. The money has been used to purchase food vouchers from our local essential food businesses and have been distributed to local Charities & groups who are aware of those most in need plus £1,500s worth of vouchers presented to the Hunstanton Food Bank."

Jenny Bevan, Head of Programmes, said: "Norfolk Community Foundation is delighted to support Hunstanton Town Council with this much needed project that will make a real difference in the community. We wish them every success with their work."

If you know anyone that could benefit from the Council’s voucher scheme please contact the Town Clerk, Jan Roomes on 01485 532402 or email clerk@hunstantontowncouncil.gov.uk all calls will be treated in strict confidence.
