Crediton Morrisons store donates food to cr2ee Ukranian Appeal
CREDITON Morrisons store Community Champion, Mandy Fosbrooke, was delighted to donate a selection of food to the cr2ee Ukranian Appeal.
Volunteers Rob and Ellie Johnstone were at the store to collect the grocery items to take them to the charity who in turn took them to Ukraine, using a lorry that would otherwise have returned empty to Romania.
Ellie said: “Rob and I have been fortunate to meet charity worker Hugh Scudder, at his Kenton storage lockup, where we gave him 18 brand new rucksacks, which had been filled with essentials for teenagers, by the Year 11 students from Queen Elizabeth’s School in Crediton.
“We were so impressed by him, and the charity he founded nearly 30 years ago, that we decided to support him in any way we can.
“Morrisons have been very generous, and our neighbours in Coleford too. We also had 774 Easter Eggs donated by the Moo Free chocolate factory in Holsworthy”
Ellie added: “Any tinned, dried or long-life food would be greatly appreciated, plus basic first aid kits. I then take them to either Kenton, or Exmouth, and they are loaded onto a lorry.
“The latest lorry to be packed is going directly to Ukraine where Hugh is trying to set up much needed soup kitchens.”
Based in Exmouth cr2ee is a Christian based charity seeking to show love and care to those in Eastern Europe who are less fortunate than ourselves.
