Over 1m people in the UK will be forced into poverty due to the current economic crisis, many of them children. From all walks of life and all parts of the country, they will be forced to skips meals, rely on food banks and even seek out money lenders.
All is not lost, however. Over £2bn of surplus products are generated in the UK every year, including essential items like nappies, bedding and warm clothing. We take donated surplus like this and give it to those who need it to survive.
