Feeding Families are fighting poverty head on- so I'm running my first (and last) ever Great North Run for them.

Feeding Families are on the frontline of support for families and individuals living in poverty. With the rising cost of living and a government that simply isn’t acting, the charity find themselves with ever higher demand but slowing donations. 

Support for them means support to those that need it most.


£1,401.25 raised of £1,000.00 target by 59 supporters

£1,145.00 donated and £256.25 in GiftAid

Feeding Families  

Feeding Families is an exciting grass roots movement of people inspired to donate food hampers to families in food poverty at Christmas. Through one post on social media to find a family to give a hamper to as an act of kindness, over 200 people initially responded to give or receive. This number rapidly grew into a dynamic movement where families connect and come together to achieve an outstanding act of generosity. Many families are offered the lifeline of food and relief from their circumstances at the most pressured time of year by volunteers who freely give their resources to a specific family . This in turn has an uplifting effect on the donors, who feel they have personally changed lives and given hope.
