Francis George Solicitor-Advocate has made its office available as a regular contribution point for the charity, Swindon Foodbank.
The leading Swindon law firm confirmed the arrangement following the success of its foodbank last Christmas and the collection of one tonne of donated food so far this year.
Swindon Foodbank helps people struggling to pay for everyday essentials, such as food.
With one person in six in Swindon living close to the edge of their finances, there are an estimated 30,500 income deprived people living in the town.* These people have no safety net when a crisis, such as sudden illness, relationship breakdown, redundancy, or a large unexpected expense, hits. The result is real financial hardship and a struggle to put food on the table.
Francis George, founder of Francis George Solicitor Advocate, said: “We’re huge supporters of Swindon Foodbank and all it does for the town. Like so many towns that are prosperous on the surface, Swindon has many people who need our help. As a local business, we want to play our part in helping the less fortunate among us.”
The firm has received many kind donations from clients, staff and the general public. One contribution, from a generous passer-by, included so many food items the collection box overflowed.
Francis George Solicitor-Advocate welcomes all donations, from tinned goods to food hampers. To make a donation, simply take your contribution into reception at:
