Julia and Hans Rausing provide support for Nourish Food Club...
Last week in the midst of moving the Nourish Food Club from the Windsor Centre to St Thomas' Barry, our Nourish Project Lead, received an email confirming a successful funding bid.
All our projects are dependent on the generosity of our supporters and making successful funding bids.
Julia and Hans Rausing said: “We are pleased to support Manchester City Mission in Greater Manchester. The funding applications we received highlighted the emergency crisis foodbanks are facing across the country.The Foodbank Fund was created to alleviate some of the pressures foodbanks are facing with increased demand and the associated costs. We hope that those who are able will also consider giving generously to support their local foodbanks, which are a valued lifeline to many.”
