Food Banks in the Leek and Cheadle Times

Taken from the Leek and Cheadle Times newspaper:
A TEAM from the office of West Midlands MEP Nikki Sinclaire spent all last Wednesday collecting donations for local food banks at Cheadle’s ASDA store.
The MEP has been raising debt awareness and organising collections for food banks for a number of months, and the next stop on her food collection tour was the Moorlands store.
Nikki said: “Research last month shows that 500,000 people across the UK last year used a food bank to eat.

“Food banks are doing vital work in the West Midlands to feed families at a time when they may need a bit extra support. I know the difference it makes to people’s lives”.

The, We Demand a Referendum Now MEP, added: “Its amazing that we now pay £53 million a day to the European Union, while we cannot afford to feed people in our own country.”
