Residents at Greenland’s Ram Quarter development in Wandsworth showed their generosity before Christmas with donations to a local foodbank charity. The community came together to help those in need at a time when many face hardship.
Ram Quarter is a thriving community in Wandsworth. The residential, retail and leisure hub is established at the former Young's brewery in Wandsworth Town, and comprises stunning new-build and heritage homes delivered by developer Greenland.
In the run-up to Christmas each year the management at Ram Quarter organises opportunities for residents to contribute to charities which carry out important work in London, and closer to home near the development. Ram Quarter residents generously donated a large amount of food to the local Wandsworth Foodbank charity.
Wandsworth Foodbank (part of the Trussell Trust network) supports people and families in need of emergency food supplies, toiletries and advice. The charity partners with local churches to run welcome centres in Wandsworth, and relies on the kindness of the local community to give time, food and money. A foodbank collection station was opened at Ram Quarter throughout December to enable residents to support the charity. A representative of the charity estimated that Ram Quarter's donations equalled almost two hundred meals.
A representative of Wandsworth Foodbank said: "The soaring cost of living is driving record numbers of people on the lowest incomes to foodbanks like ours, and we’re working hard to ensure we have enough food and essentials to help everyone referred to us. We're very grateful to everyone who donated to the foodbank."
