It was approx. a year ago when we felt it right to invest time and energy into seeing a Trussell Trust Foodbank established for the Borough of Ealing.
Chris Sutton has since done an incredible job liaising with other churches, establishing a charity, setting up a team and board of reference, casting vision, praying and generally making the whole thing get off the ground.
Amazing to fast forward to today when there is a client centre in Acton & Greenford and the Southall centre will open tomorrow. Soon there will be centres in Northolt & Hanwell and hopefully another 2 centres will be open by next year. In the first four months over 880 local people have been fed!
It was great to see that Chris Sutton was proposed as a community hero in the Ealing Gazette this week!(Read the full article here!)
Chris is a hero to me and all the other people who have benefited from his incredible work.
