Seahaven Storehouse recently picked up a Mayor’s Award for their work in helping families and individuals in food crisis.
The Storehouse team members were handed the award by Mayor Cllr Mark Brown, at a ceremony held at its newly renovated and refurbished Golf Club, along with a cheque for £2.500.
The money was gained at many events during the past year through being one of the Mayor’s chosen charities.
Dan Woodgate, who heads up the Storehouse, said, “We were very pleased to receive the award in recognition of our first two years’ work spent feeding needy families. However, in reality, success for us would be that we were no longer needed because those in need were able to put food on the table themselves.
“I don’t think that is likely to happen in the immediate future, though. Only recently we hit an all-time high when we fed 30 families in one week alone.”
Seahaven Storehouse obtains the needed food from the bins in Morrisons, the Co-operative and from donations from individuals and organisations.
