The importance of Food Banks in the UK has risen in recent years; the pandemic has hugely highlighted this - 1 in 5 households currently live beneath the poverty line.
We’ve partnered with our guy Jack (a local Triathlon athlete) on his mission to help local Food Banks – and we want you to join us (he's going to be doing the tough part here!)
ABOUT JACK & HIS MISSION:
Jack trains religiously every year to take part in this iconic (and tough) sporting event and always assigns his efforts and commitments to a fundraiser that helps others.
This year Jack has a fundraising project that is close to a lot of our hearts, he's raising funds for Cardiff Food Bank.
Food is ESSENTIAL; it's a life or death matter.
This year Jack’s kicked it up a gear and will be aiming to complete the following challenges in the Ironman Event:
2.4 mile swim + 112 mile cycle + 26.2 mile marathon to polish things off.
(He must complete the above before 17 hours lapse at Midnight, from 7am)
Jack's goal is to raise £1,000, the project is currently at £545.
Thank you to everyone that has donated!! We were able to collectively raise £225.00 (45 tickets @ £5) to donate directly to Cardiff Foodbank and one lucky donator has claimed The Skeleton Table Lamp! Jack's Gofundme page has also raised £810.00! This means Jack's goal of £1,000 has been surpassed!
Jack has a list of the goods that are most needed in our local food banks here in Cardiff; he will purchase these goods & distribute to each Foodbank centre that needs it the most. THANK YOU!!
