Residents and staff at Kernow House in Launceston decided to raise money for Launceston Foodbank during their fundraising event this December.

They raised £136.17 during a 50 pence sale, coffee morning and a raffle.

Many residents watch the news on television and read the newspapers and they are very aware of how difficult it can be for some families to manage financially with the rising costs. Christmas is a time for celebration in every way, and residents suggested, that the fundraising should go to help local people have a good Christmas.

Launceston Foodbank gave them a Christmas List with items specifically to make Christmas a little festive and the home took the list with them, when they went shopping.

A large amount of Christmas food and a few little extras were purchased and presented to Yvonne King, Foodbank Project Manager.

Residents, Debbie and Richard, helped with the shopping and choosing the items and said: “It feels good to be able to give back and do something for others.”
