Singer to raise money for foodbank at Harpenden tour
PUBLISHED: 11:00 30 September 2018
A singer and guitarist will be performing at Harpenden Public Halls to raise money for foodbanks around the UK.
Glenn Tilbrook will appear in Harpenden on Saturday, October 20, as part of a tour promoting awareness and donations for the Trussell Trust, which supports a network of foodbanks.
At each performance venue there will be food drop points and collection boxes, and Glenn will also donate all profits from his merchandise, including an exclusive four-track EP, to the organisation.
Glenn said: “It is shameful that in the 21st century there are people that can’t afford to put food on the table.
“Anyone, from any walk of life, can fall upon dire times, and I hope that by doing this tour it will remind people that there is a very real need.
“Most of us can do something to help - be it giving some food or a little money – and I hope people coming to the shows are inspired to donate.”
Food donations from the venues will be collected and distributed to the nearest Trussell Trust foodbank. The foodbanks provide a minimum of three days’ nutritionally-balanced, non-perishable tinned and dried foods that have been donated by the local community.
Items in a typical food parcel are cereal, soup, pasta, tinned tomatoes/pasta sauce, lentils, beans and pulses, tinned meat, tinned vegetables, tea and coffee, tinned fruit, biscuits, UHT milk and fruit juice.
