A year on 10-year-olds food bank is bigger than ever

CARING school boy Isaac Winfield celebrated his food bank turning one last weekend with festive drinks and a visit from Santa as a thank you.

Isaac, 10 years old from Greenlands started the food bank a year ago to give a gift to those in need.

He now has three sheds full of food and toiletries donated from their local community.

The family have even had a letter from local MP Rachel Maclean congratulating them on their efforts to help people in need.




Claire-Louise, Isaacs mum said: ” I am totally humbled and proud of how Isaac has supported his community over the last 12 months and so massively humbled and grateful to everyone who had supported his project.

“For a young man to have the idea to ‘give people free food at our house’ to what we have today has just been incredible.


“From a small pop up greenhouse a year ago, to three sheds and a drive to give a gift to those in need today, it’s amazing.”

Earlier this year the food bank was vandalised by two children, with food taken and destroyed.

But with the help of the community and the local Morrisons they were able to build back up their supplies and continue to help people in need.

Claire-Louise added: “A massive thank you to everyone who has supported Isaac through his food bank being vandalised, each and every one of the community has been appreciated and valued as an important part of building us back up.

“If you have something you feel you can spare, it doesn’t matter how big or small, it’s about working together.”
