Christmas food collection for Bancosol
This festive period, Specsavers Ópticas in Fuengirola is collecting food for the Costa del Sol’s food bank, Bancosol. Food donations can be dropped into the store until January 5th to support the most disadvantaged families in our community.
Bancosol is a non-profit organisation which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. Since 2008, they have seen an ever-increasing number of people who need their support, and the organisation works hard to provide as much as they possibly can. They currently supply food to 169 charities and associations, helping to feed over 47,000 vulnerable people and are always looking for support from businesses and individuals.
Specsavers Ópticas in Fuengirola is getting behind Bancosol as their chosen Christmas charity. They are asking local residents to help the most disadvantaged people in their community by making a small food donation over the festive period. The charity is particularly in need of milk, oil and canned foods and every little helps.
Store director Judith Borland comments, ‘It is heartbreaking to think of anyone struggling to feed their families, but sadly this is a reality for many. We want to try to boost the amount of food available to vulnerable people on the Costa del Sol and add to the amazing work that Bancosol have been doing through their November collection campaign. We’re asking customers and local residents to pick up a few extra cartons of milk or some tins of food, or oil and drop them into the store. Your donation could make the difference between whether someone goes hungry or not.’
Throughout December, anyone can drop off their food at Specsavers Ópticas Fuengirola between 10.00-14.00 and 15.00-19.00 Monday to Friday and 10.00 to 14.00 on Saturdays. It is located near the bus station on Avenida Ramon y Cajal 6, Fuengirola.
On Monday 8 January, the donations will be handed over to Bancosol Food Bank, for them to distribute in the community via partnerships with local charitable organisations.
