Listeners of Inspire FM raised a staggering £10,000 for Luton Foodbank’s winter campaign.
Inspire FM’s winter campaign aims to support local charities and organisations that are making a positive impact in the community.
This year, Inspire FM teamed up with Luton Foodbank to support their ‘Let’s Feed’ campaign. The joint campaign was aimed at eradicating food poverty this winter in Luton. Food was raised for the Foodbank and funds to go towards food parcels.
The campaign included Inspire FM’s Let’s Eat Together Event. This event brought the community together to share a meal over the holidays. Over 400 people enjoyed fun activities, hot food and cake all for free.
Radio station manager, Mohammed Tariq, said: “This time of year is very tough for many people in the town. We recognise that the Luton Foodbank provides much-needed support and are delighted to again play a part in making life a little easier for some in our town this winter.”
Liz Stringer, chair of the Foodbank, said: “The Muslim community have shown time and time again how generous they are when it comes to supporting local causes, and we rely upon the donations from people in our town.”
