Generous UNISON members help Rotherham foodbank
UNISON members answered the call to help the local foodbank after it was targeted by burglars. The Rotherham foodbank was ransacked and 60% of its food stock was stolen. UNISON held a collection outside Riverside House and was overwhelmed by the response. Members donated enough food to fill 60 bags, which have now been delivered to the foodbank.
Rotherham foodbank provides much needed support to some of the town's most vulnerable families. So far this year, the Foodbank has helped almost 1,500 people in the town, including over 460 children. We are pleased that, through our members' generosity, we have been able to get the foodbank back up and running.
