Back in December we were approached by Ardmore Construction whom we are working with at The Old War Office redevelopment. They informed us of their charitable winter campaign, working with Charlton Athletic Community Trust, to tackle food hunger by raising money to provide food boxes to school-age children over the Christmas holidays. We were very happy to contribute.
Following a successful campaign the initial fund-raising target of £3,000, achieved within 24 hours, was increased to £6,000 and then £10,000. The campaign was able to provide 92 food boxes, each one containing breakfast for two weeks, with healthy ingredients and easy-to-follow menus. The extra money raised is being used to provide food for children and young people at similar projects in school holidays.
