Alex Dowling, Head of Sales and Marketing at Barratt David Wilson Southern Counties, commented: “Foodbanks often receive a flurry of incredible donations at Christmas, but it is just as important to maintain the support for those in need throughout the year. We are proud to support this foodbank in helping to combat hunger across West Sussex and hope the donation provides immediate assistance.”
