Richmondshire WW members donate to foodbank

Beki Bulmer and Corinne Alsop donate goods to the Storehouse.

Members of WW groups in Richmondshire have donated goods to a foodbank.

Beki Bulmer, who runs groups in Richmond and Catterick Garrison, said she wanted to give something back to the community she lives in.

Beki encouraged all the members of her five WW (formerly Weight Watchers) groups to bring in food, nappies, and toiletries.

Beki, together with one of her members Corinne Alsop, made the donation to the foodbank at the Storehouse at The Influence Church in Richmond.

Beki said: “It’s so important at this time of year to support others.

“Collecting healthy foods and donating them to people in need is something we’ve done for the last three years.

“The foodbank had specifically asked for UHT milk and carrier bags which we able to donate.

“It makes sense to support the community in this way.”

Beki’s local workshops are the Hanson Club in Catterick, Wackadays in Brompton-on-Swale and The Station in Richmond.
