Harrow Foodbank were delighted to receive a £1,000 donation from The Pinner Association in November after they unanimously agreed in their meeting that they should be the recipient of festive donations.
The money was donated through the membership costs after the association are hopeful that the foodbank’s project manager, Chonde Nkowani, will be able to give a talk to members in the next meeting, which may have to be on Zoom.
Speaking to PinnerNews, acting chair of The Pinner Assosciation Julie Waller said: “We have previously given donations to the foodbank and we thought it would be a good time to do it again after all the amazing community work that they have done throughout the pandemic.
“They are here for the long term, not just during COVID-19, and we decided the donation was deserved in order to help with, not just buying food, but to go someway in helping with the costs of running the organisation such as the rent.
“They are an enormous asset to the Harrow borough and residents in Pinner and it was voted unanimously by members to support them. It’s fantastic that they have different distribution spots over the borough and work with churches to provide a safety point for people who need them.”
Chonde also told Julie and the other members of the association that she was “very grateful for the kind donation from Pinner Association”.
