The funds that we received came at a very important transitional time for Nourish and we have been able to put our expansion plans in place with your help. This has meant that we have been able to increase our coverage and made sure that more people are not going hungry.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to take a break in my caring role. It’s not been an easy time for me recently. Being a dual carer, me-time has been non-existent. This will be the first time that I will have been away on my own in the last 10 years. Thank you so much for your support.
