The Isle of Man branch held a very successful wine tasting evening on 8th November at the Claremont in aid of Isle of Man Foodbank.
Over 40 guests attended this fantastic event to help raise awareness and much needed funds for the IOM Foodbank which helps people on the Island in times of crisis.
The raffle raised an amazing £500 which was generously £4£ matched by Lloyds Bank International taking the total to a staggering £1,000.
HSBC kindly sponsored the welcome drinks for this event which means we are also able to donate the proceeds from the ticket sales.
The Isle of Man Foodbank provides crisis support in the form of food parcels to families and individuals in need. They also provide a support and action plan to help get beyond the crisis, and plan for a return to independence, training and advice on cooking with minimal facilities and a means of distributing surplus food from suppliers to those in need.
