The Eastleigh Basics Bank is a brilliant organisation. It gives practical support to individuals and families in financial crisis.
Eastleigh Town Centre today has been turned into a scene of carnival.
In the morning, I saw Dave Keating, the shop manager of Eastleigh Basics Bank, being very busy in the street.He was talking to people and encouraging them to support Eastleigh Basics Bank.
An Eastleigh Basics Bank trolley was also slowly filled up with food donated by the public.
What’s the work of Eastleigh Basics Bank?
“Latest figures show we have now supplied 5000 people with a 5 day supply of food in 2.5 years of serving our community. We are currently feeding on average (and have been for several months now) 120 people a week. Not normally one to do the maths for you but if it continues at this rate that’s another 6000 people by this time next year!”
