Below is a letter from Babs Rouncevell who is leading the Feed Cornwall campaign. It would be fantastic if the BIDS in Cornwall could support this and encourage their members to do so as well. Attached are some images you can use if that is helpful. Please use #FeedCornwall if you are posting anything on social media.
Struggling local families across Cornwall need YOUR help
Two weeks ago the CHAOS Collective, a group of amazing individuals and organisations from across Cornwall, joined together to record a special Cornish version of the ‘Do They Know it’s Christmas’ charity single made famous by Band Aid.
The Feed Cornwall song and video is part of a new campaign aimed at increasing awareness of the problems caused by food poverty in the country and raising money to help families who are struggling to put food on the table.
You can view the Feed Cornwall video on the CHAOS website at www.chaosgroupcornwall.co.uk/feed-cornwall .
Every single penny of the money raised by the song and video will be used to support food banks and other projects to tackle food poverty in Cornwall. Donations are being managed by the Cornwall Community Foundation who will work alongside local organisations, including the Cornwall Food Access Alliance, Transformation Cornwall and the CHAOS Group, to ensure funding is targeted at helping vulnerable people.
We know that some people in Cornwall are in danger of going hungry this Christmas. Please help us to help them by supporting our campaign.
You can support Feed Cornwall by:
- Posting messages of support on your own social media channels and encouraging your family and friends to share them ( #FeedCornwall)
- Resharing or re-tweeting the messages on the CHAOS Twitter, Facebook and Instagram channels
- Recording your own mini videos supporting the campaign and posting them on social media
- Making a donation on our Crowd funder page : https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/feed-cornwall
If you own a business or manage an organisation please encourage your staff, volunteers, suppliers and any others you work with to watch the video and support our campaign.
We know that some families were already struggling before the Covid pandemic and want to ensure that no -one in Cornwall goes hungry.
We are very proud to support the Feed Cornwall campaign – will you join us and make a real difference in the lives of people in need?
You can find out more about the campaign – and what you can do to help – on the CHAOS website: www.chaosgroupcornwall.co.uk/feed-cornwall ..
