Dawsons supporting local foodbanks

After 10 years of cuts and a global pandemic, more people than ever are facing destitution. It’s time for change . . . #RANFoodbank2021

Another year comes around, and again we are delighted to be joining forces with other estate agents across the UK to support our local foodbanks.  This is the fourth year that Relocation Agent Network has hosted such an event, which coincides with Agents Giving’s ‘Donate a Food Parcel Day’ on 17 June. Agents Giving is a UK-based charity that works with estate and letting agents and their suppliers to encourage and support fundraising activities.  

When is the Food Collection happening?

The event is taking place next week: Monday 14th through the week to Friday 18th June, and it will see Relocation Agent Network members across England, Scotland and Wales join forces to help tackle food poverty in the UK.  So if you have any spare food items or other vital supplies like toiletries (see lists below), please get your donations to any of our Dawsons Offices during and we will deliver all items collected to our local foodbanks.
