Perpetual are delighted to donate money each month to two charities. We are fully committed to giving something back to the community and further afield. We avoid household name charities and actively target smaller more direct charities.

This cracking charity was set-up in 2008 to help enable street children in Jinja, Uganda to go to school and prosper.

A small amount of money goes along way – as little as £15 per month can transform a child’s life. We love this charity as 100% of all money donated to 1moreChild goes to tackle the problem.  There are no western overheads, admin costs or wastage. The money can make an enormous difference to 1moreChild and enable them to take many more children out of the slum.

North Bristol Foodbank

foodbank
A little closer to home although just as important is our second monthly donation charity. Our monthly contribution helps but any essential items not donated each month.

How the foodbank works

Food is donated

Schools, churches, businesses and individuals donate non-perishable, in-date food to the foodbank. All food given out by foodbanks is donated.

‘Supermarket Collections’ are one of the main ways that food is donated: These are food drives held at supermarkets where volunteers give shoppers a ‘foodbank shopping list’ and ask them to buy an extra item or two for local people in crisis.

Food is sorted and stored

Volunteers sort food to check that it’s in date and pack it into boxes ready to be given to people in need.

3188 Helped By North Bristol Foodbank In Last Year
Three days’ emergency food was given 3188 times by North Bristol Foodbank in 2014-15, compared to 2808 in 2013-14

Frontline care professionals identify people in need

Care professionals such as doctors, health visitors, social workers, CAB and police identify people in crisis and issue them with a foodbank voucher.

Clients receive food

Foodbank clients bring their voucher to a foodbank outlet where it can be redeemed for three days emergency food. Volunteers meet clients over a cup of tea and are able to signpost people to agencies able to solve the longer-term problem
