ONE Tonne Walk

Help us raise funds by joining in on our ONE tonne walk!

After 5 years of loyal service, collecting and distributing the equivalent of over half a million meals, our van suffered a fatal electric failure last week.

Sufra NW London is dependent on its van. It runs 7 days/week, 365/days of the year. Though it operates mainly within a 3 miles radius, it has travelled over 10,000 miles in the last year. Without it, the Food Bank might just as well close its doors.

We have launched a Van Appeal to raise £20,000 in the next 3 months. We must purchase a replacement in time for Christmas – our busiest time of the year. We simply have no choice.

On Saturday 10 November 2018, we have a major food collection at Asda Wembley Park. How will we get 1 tonne of donated food to the Food Bank?

We will carry it by hand.

To support the Van Appeal we are launching the most outlandish fundraising walk in history on Saturday 10 November 2018 from 1pm to 4pm. The Big Walk will see volunteers carrying crates and dragging yellow bins of food from Asda Wembley Park, past Brent Civic Centre and Wembley Stadium, down Harrow Road to Sufra NW London.

Along the way we will distribute Van Appeal flyers, protest against food poverty (with banners and placards!) and make a shocking racket with drums and trumpets.

If you can’t carry a heavy crate, you can carry a donation box. If you can’t drag a yellow bin of food, you can hold up a placard.

Or you can just walk in solidarity with us.

Because we will #FightFoodPoverty.
