Coast to Coast Cycle Ride for Foodbank

As a Director of the crisis intervention charity, Swindon Foodbank I'm committed to raise around £75,000 each year to enable the organisation to function. Foodbank uses a ground-breaking concept to help individuals and families in crisis by providing free emergency food until the appropriate agencies are in a position to assist.

Since early 2009 we have been seeing over 300 applicants each month, back in 2007 this was only 80 each momth. The referrals are from the Professional Care Agencies in the town to ensure they are genuine cases of hardship. Foodbank provides those referred with food until the State Benefit kicks which can take between 7 and 33 days; Foodbank fills that void where there are no family or friends to help. The financial crisis really hit many parts of the UK badly - poverty is right on your door step - there are now over 55 Foodbanks in the UK with more planned because they are very much needed...

To help with the 2010 fund raising we are organising a series of events next up is...

Are meetings really the cornerstone of organisational life?

Ask a group of managers at random; which activity wastes most of your time and causes you the most frustration and most of your audience will say “meetings.”
