Take part in food collection for the Island’s homeless and those in need

This year Christine will be collecting long-life food for the Isle of Wight’s homeless and those in need – details within

Over 900 items collected for homeless

Christine Ward, who in previous years has run a very successful reverse advent scheme to help those in need, is once again putting others first.

Between now and 20th December Christine will be collecting food for Aspire Ryde, a charity that helps the Island’s homeless and those in need.

Christine says,

“In the past people have done the reverse advent calendar idea, which each day in advent you put a long life food item in a box and give it to someone in need. I am only sharing this as a idea, we are grateful for any donation, even if it’s just a box of tea bags, it will all make a difference.”

In the next few weeks Christine says Aspire will be letting her know which items which will be more beneficial to them.

Share the idea
She asks if readers can share this idea with work colleagues and schools, so together we will make a difference.

Wouldn’t it be better to donate to the Foodbank so you have Island wide distribution, backed up by a referral network of professionals if any follow up support is required?


Maybe donations-givers could also get together & occupy City Chambers to show that we are disgusted that food deprivation, homelessness & poverty has increased C/o 10 years of Tory austerity & conscious cruelty?
