The Hub Food Bank donationAfter a hugely successful Facebook campaign during December, The Hub has made good on its promise to donate £763 to local charity Food Bank MK.

For the second year, in the run up to Christmas, The Hub ran a campaign to encourage new ‘likes’ on its Facebook page. For every new like it received it promised to donate £1 to this worthwhile local charity, specifically chosen because The Hub is the city’s premier restaurant quarter.

Over 760 new likes during the month raised a significant amount for the charity that provides local families and individuals with essential food supplies at a time when they need it most, covering the days or sometimes weeks before other parts of the social care infrastructure can come into play.

Rebecca Savage, spokesperson for the charity said, “We are so grateful to The Hub for running their fantastic ‘Like’ campaign again, donating even more than last year! Support from local companies like The Hub is crucial as Food Bank MK faced a 32% increase in demand on last year with many more families needing to access the service.”

Simon Spavins, from Broadoak Management, who manage The Hub commented, “It was our pleasure to once again support this worthwhile local charity. The Hub wanted to play its part, even in a small way, to make sure they can carry providing this invaluable support throughout the coming year.”
