Help the Brownies and the One Can Trust foodbank fight summer hunger. The One Can Trust is a food bank serving Marlow and High Wycombe. It experiences high demand during the summer holidays because children don’t get meals at school.
Girls from the Second Marlow Bottom Brownies want to tell you about their Summer Holiday Countdown Calendar, which they invented in 2018 as a fun and easy way to help One Can Trust get enough food to stop local children going hungry over the summer. More than 30 organisations took part and Summer Holiday Countdown Calendar donations filled the One Can Trust’s shelves for months. The Brownies hope that the 2019 Summer Holiday Countdown Calendar will be even bigger!
You can pick up a Countdown Calendar at the LOVE Marlow information hub (at Marlow Methodist Church) or at the One Can Trust stall on Regatta Sunday.
The basic idea is for you, your family, group, class, company etc. to put aside a bag for life and, from the 1st day of July to the last day of the school summer term, pop an item or £1 coin in the bag. The One Can Trust warehouse in Duke St. High Wycombe (HP13 6EE) will be open on Saturday 20th July, from 10am until 1pm and on Wednesday 24th July 10am to 4pm to receive your donations.
