ACTIVE Tameside recently ran a campaign across its Fuel cafes for World Hunger Day to raise awareness of the cause and to make a difference to the local community.
With the help of one of their local suppliers, Dunsters Farm, Active Tameside sold bottles of water in all five of its Fuel cafes, which are situated in their gyms and attractions.
With the help of their members, customers and staff, Active Tameside raised £240 from the bottles of water sold.
With its head office Active Ken Ward located in Tameside South, they donated the money to the Tameside South and Longdendale foodbank.
Active Tameside’s deputy CEO Reg Patel presented the cheque to the foodbank’s project co-ordinator Susan Ayers.
World Hunger Day is an initiative by The Hunger Project. Started in 2011, it aims to celebrate sustainable solutions to hunger and poverty.
More than 815 million people in the world do not have enough food. The aim of World Hunger Day was to make a difference to the poorest communities.
