First Step have proudly donated £500 to The Need Project today!
For those few of you that don’t know: The Need Project are a non-profit charity based in Stotfold who help provide food parcels all year round but the Christmas period is their busiest time. They have become one of the largest community projects in the area.
Deb and Nicola from the First Step office were invited to take a look around at how The Need Project get the food parcels together at Kings Baptist Church, they only have a week to get all the food parcels done in time for Christmas.
The project is run by Gordon Hamilton and his many hard working volunteers. It was a very insightful visit and it was clear how much work goes into such a worthy cause.
This is one of the busiest weeks for The Need Project with a very impressive 700+ food parcels to prepare and deliver to the local community! This year they have also been very lucky to receive over £12,000 worth of children’s toys courtesy of Cultivo Lounge in Letchworth and their Giving Tree campaign, after their very generous customers donated toys.
The First Step Team would like to wish Gordon and his hard working volunteers A Very Merry Christmas and all the best for 2022 – keep up the good work!
