The following organisations have received donations from the PETT scheme:
We wanted to take the opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your kind donations. Each donation pledged has meant we have raised a whopping total of £1,390 – which is fantastic news!
We are so thrilled to be able to help the clients of Manna House, and each pack is going to significantly help those in need, especially throughout the winter months. We couldn’t have done it without you, so thank you.
Ann, one of the Trustees of Manna house said,
“On behalf of Manna House (Hanley), I would ‘ONCE AGAIN’ like to thank you all for considering our work with the homeless and vulnerable in Stoke-on-Trent and acknowledge the wonderful Winter Warmer and fabulous Fresh Start packs delivered today (23/12/2020). Your innovated gift ideas never cease to amaze us and the way in which you choose to present them displays such thought and care”
We have been able to purchase 44 Winter Warmer packs, worth £20 each and 51 Fresh Start packs, each worth £10.
Stoke-on-Trent Foodbank has given out three-day food parcels to over 49,000 people since its inception in 2012. That is how one client described the service:
“The foodbank was there when we really needed it, it was an absolute lifeline.”
During the period before Easter Stoke-on-Trent Foodbank launched their Adlent Food Collection Calendar and PETT were only too happy to take part.
‘Being a member of PETT and a foodbank volunteer, I see on a weekly basis the impact food parcels have on members of the community that are going through a tough time. It can make all the difference to an individual or a family. Thank you so much’.
Following the calendar, team members purchased an item a day, donating non-perishable items like t-bags, soup, pasta sauce, tinned vegetables, etc.
