STAGECOACH MANCHESTER TO SET UP REGULAR DONATIONS TO THE TRUSSELL TRUST FOOD BANKS ACROSS THE REGION

Local bus operator Stagecoach Manchester announces it will regularly donate essential food products to the Trussell Trust’s food banks across the Greater Manchester area, as it launches staff drop-off points at its depots.

Stagecoach Manchester is committed to supporting its local communities, and the support for the Trussell Trust serves as part of the bus company’s nationwide “Giving for Good” initiative. This initiative aims to support local communities by promoting health & wellbeing, supporting young people in skills and employment, addressing loneliness and increasing opportunity and accessibility to much-needed services.

The Trussell Trust is an anti-poverty charity that supports a nationwide network of more than 1,300 food bank centres and together they provide emergency food and support to help people facing hardship.

Sophie Carre – Head of Corporate Partnerships at the Trussell Trust said:

“Food banks in our network have told us they are being stretched to breaking point as a result of rising need, increased energy costs and inflation and they’re preparing for their hardest ever winter. We are delighted to work alongside Stagecoach as part of their ‘Giving for Good’ initiative. Their support will help food banks within our network continue to provide the lifeline of emergency support for local people facing financial hardship in these challenging times, while we work in the long term to end the need for food banks, for good. Thank you so much”

Local support for the Trussell Trust includes food banks in areas close to the six Stagecoach Manchester depots where collections will take place; Tameside East, Manchester Central, Middleton, Stockport and Atherton & Leigh.

Lee Wasnidge, Managing Director of Stagecoach Manchester said: “We are extremely passionate about supporting our local communities, and the Giving for Good initiative allows us to identify local charities, providing real hands-on help to those in need throughout our region.

“The cost-of-living crisis will hit hard this winter, and vulnerable families across Manchester will rely on help from charities such as the Trussell Trust, so we’re delighted to help however we can.”
