With the cost of living rising, many people in our local community are struggling and worry how they will put food on the table to feed their families. We want to help them so we’re running a donation drive to collect food for those in need. Donations will help Communities at Work to stock their community food pantries. Please support our drive and bring your donations to [insert collection point] by [insert end of drive date]. They especially need tinned food at the moment. Thanks!

We thought we’d make this donation drive even more fun by doing a CANstruction drive. That’s where you get to create interesting structures out of canned food and other essential items. So, organise a team, pick your theme, start collecting cans and build a creative food masterpiece! Judging will be held on [insert date]. For more info see …….
