Housing Systems: Combating poverty and sustaining tenancies.
Monthly Quiz:
In the last year we have donated over £750 to Food Banks across the length and breadth of the UK from Plymouth to Angus and Conwy including others in between... 
We have received several messages of thanks - so we thought we would share a couple with you... 
"Your support will be very much appreciated by our Food Bank clients and go a long way to making a difference in people's lives", Hope Centre, Derby. 
"Your generous donation will sustain the work of the charity to feed those who are in crisis in the local area", Chichester District Foodbank. 
So why not have a go at our competition - it could be you nominating your local food bank (and winning a nice box of chocolates for yourself too!)
