Maintel plans a range of fundraising activities during 2021, where staff will attempt to walk the equivalent of Lands End to John O’Groats – over 600 steps. Every team that completes the challenge, Maintel will donate to the Trussell Trust charity. ” – Maria Maguire, EA to CEO
In working with the Trussell Trust, the Cloud and Managed Services firm Maintel aims to back the charity’s nationwide network of food banks by continuing to provide emergency food and support to people trapped in poverty in Britain.
We support a nationwide network of food banks and together we provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, and campaign for change to end the need for food banks in the UK.
In the UK, more than 14 million people are living in poverty – including 4.5 million children. We support more than 1,200 food bank centres in the UK to provide a minimum of three days’ nutritionally-balanced emergency food to people who have been referred in crisis, as well as support to help people resolve the crises they face.
Between April 2019 and March 2020, food banks in our network provided a record 1.9 million food supplies to people in crisis, an 18% increase on the previous year and during the coronavirus pandemic food banks have seen need rise even further.
