Droitwich care home supports local community through food bank collection

Ravenstone care home in Droitwich is supporting the local community by collecting a harvest food parcel for the local foodbank.

Josie, a resident at the care home, which is based on St Andrews Road, has delivered the hamper to Droitwich Spa foodbank.

The foodbank at Droitwich Baptist Church is a project founded by local churches and community groups, working together towards stopping hunger in the local area. It has around fifty volunteers who regularly help out in the foodbank centre and or warehouse. It covers Droitwich Spa and the surrounding area.

Wendy Stokoe, registered manager at Ravenstone care home, said: “The staff and residents of Ravenstone have put together this hamper because we feel strongly connected to our local community. The volunteers at the foodbank do an amazing job and we’re pleased to be able to help.

“We’re pleased to be able to make a contribution, however small, to make sure that nobody in our area is left without food on the table.”

The foodbank at Droitwich Baptist Church is open on Tuesdays 12:30-14:30 and Fridays from 14:00-16:00. To find out more, visit: https://droitwichspa.foodbank.org.uk/

Ravenstone forms part of Larchwood Care and is managed by Healthcare Management Solutions. 84% of Larchwood Care Homes are rated as ‘Good’ or above by the CQC, above the industry average.
