Christmas cheer for 516 families across Yatton and surrounding villages

Yeo Valley Lions Club members have been proud to work with the Clevedon branch of the Trussell Trust foodbank from the start of the pandemic, delivering food parcels to needy families and individuals in crisis throughout the Yatton and surrounding areas. Also they have collected donations from local shops for storage or onward distribution by the Trussell Trust.
Minibus Using the Lions minibus it has been possible to extend the reach of the Clevedon foodbank to remote villages across North Somerset and to move quantities of food which would otherwise be impractical.
An outpost of the Clevedon foodbank, staffed partly by Lions, has been set up in Yatton the home town of Yeo Valley Lions, for easy access by local people in need. Additionally, in the run up to Christmasís 2020 and 2021 Yeo Valley Lions have helped assemble Christmas food hampers for families throughout the area by transferring crates and bags of donations to a central assembly point, before distribution to schools, homes and youth clubs using the Lions minibus.

Each hamper was filled by Trussell Trust volunteers and scaled to provide an extra bit of Christmas cheer for individuals and families that would otherwise have to go without. Over a period of 3 days in early December 2021 the Lions members transported a large proportion of the astonishing 516 Christmas hampers distributed this year.
