Morrisons in Brentford has delivered more than 1,000 Easter eggs to the local Food Bank and another pallet load to staff at West Middlesex hospital. Michael Willis the store manager saw a social media post for volunteers and food.
“I saw a request for food on the Hounslow website, rang them up and offered as many Easter Eggs as we could manage” he said. “We have delivered about a dozen pallet loads so far, which is somewhere in the thousands. I’m now off to the West Middlesex Hospital with a van full of eggs for their nursing staff just so say in a small way, a big thanks for all the fantastic work they are doing for the community”.
Cllr Guy Lambert, Cabinet Member at Hounslow Council who is also a Vice-Chair of the local food bank said:
“This is a really generous gesture by Michael and his team at Morrisons so many thanks to them. They will certainly bring a smile to a lot of children’s faces come Easter Sunday. I must also say we have had equally generous contributions of other essential food packages from Sainsburys, the Co-op and Asda, and through them, have distributed hundreds of food parcels to those local residents who need them most.”
