The Lincoln Food Bank (Trussell Trust) received a most welcome surprise Christmas present this year. Lincs Van Hire very generously presented them with a new delivery van and are going to maintain it free on a five year lease.
“I think we all take for granted being able to cook a meal when there are people out there that can’t do that.”Matthew Broadbent, managing director at Lincs Van Hire
Simon Hawking, chief Executive for Acts Trust which manages Lincoln Foodbank said: “To have a van of this quality is a real boost to the team. It means their own work environment is really good. It’s a bigger van. It’s efficient, and for the City, it’s a great service.”
Even more incredibly, when the van was delivered, it had hundreds of pounds worth of food in the back! This is a great boost for the Food Bank as their existing van – used both to pick up and distribute food to those in food poverty – was on its last wheels.
