JSHolmes MAXUS LAUNCHES FESTIVE FOOD APPEAL
MAXUS Dealerships urges public and businesses alike to support local food banks ahead of difficult Christmas period
Throughout December, over 30 participating MAXUS dealerships the length and breadth of the country will be aiding their local food bank in a bid to help people in need, particularly in the face of rising inflation and the cost-of-living crisis.
In support of the food appeal, JS Holmes MAXUS has committed to providing a specially liveried eDELIVER 9 100% electric van to assist Wisbech Foodbank. The zero-emission van will be used to deliver food donations in the lead-up to Christmas.
Mark Barrett, General Manager of Harris MAXUS said: “Foodbanks provide emergency food and support to families and individuals who find themselves in financial crisis. They rely heavily upon donations, particularly during the festive period. This year, the number of people depending on their local food bank has increased dramatically due to the rising cost of living. In response, we are calling on local residents, customers and neighbouring businesses to donate to their local food bank this December as part of the MAXUS Food Appeal. Together we can make a difference - all donations are welcome however big or small.”
A recent survey1 found that 93% of food banks in the UK have reported an increase or significant increase in the need for their services since the start of 2022 and 80% have struggled with food supply issues.
