Last updated at 16:00, Thursday, 20 March 2014
OVER 200 children’s toys have been delivered to the Barrow Foodbank to improve the lives of working families in the town.
FedEx, a global courier business, delivered 236 toys donated by Jakks Pacific, along with food packages, to the centre in Abbey Road.
It is hoped that the toys will brighten up the lives of children and families who are going through a time of crisis.
Altogether, FedEx has delivered more than 8,000 children’s toys to 36 Trussell Trust Foodbanks across the UK, as part of its FedEx Cares initiative.
Each foodbank received 236 donated toys including princess dolls, car alarm sets and racing starter packs.
“We are really proud to be once again working alongside the Trussell Trust,” said Trevor Hoyle, vice president of Operations FedEx UK & Ireland.
“It is such a worthwhile cause and we are glad our involvement can help children and families across the UK in times of difficulty”.
