Aylesbury boy continues foodbank project

A boy from Aylesbury is still helping out the foodbank here, after being inspired by one of our appeals this year.

Elijah Christensen heard our story about Aylesbury Foodbank needing donations in the summer and did his own collection.

Now he's done it again!

Elijah decided that he didn't like to think of families not having much over Christmas so, following on from his collection in the summer holidays, he took it upon himself to ask Steve Sandford of Sandman Boxing if he could again use the gym as a collection point.

The members of the gym were incredibly generous who, along with friends and family, generously donated over 4 large crates full of food to the collection.

As well as the tins of soup, pasta etc Elijah had donations of selection boxes, Christmas puddings, chocolates etc in addition to the sometimes forgotten items of toothbrushes and feminine Hygeine products. 

Steve Sandford of Sandman Boxing said:

"Elijah is a shining example of everything we promote in the gym.  

"Showing discipline and supporting those around him - he actively seeks to help everyone and we are extremely proud of his work in and out of the gym and seeing his growth from a shy quiet little boy to this caring and supportive young man"
