Marlow councillor Alex Collingwood has thanked the people of the town as more donations have been made to the One Can Trust.

The Conservative councillor set up a collection point at his Marlow home back in April when the country was in lockdown, where he was encouraged those in the town to leave food and drinks at his door.

He would then take the donations to the charity’s warehouse in High Wycombe.

Since he launched the collection point at his house three months ago, hundreds of donations have been made, and he took to social media to thank those who are making a difference.

He said: “Thank you once again for your amazing One Can Trust donations.

“In addition to this food, I received an amazing anonymous donation of £100.

“This will fund five standard food parcels which will provide an adult three meals a day for four days.

“Any donations of food are greatly appreciated or you can donate money directly to One Can Trust.”

In a post on the Facebook page Marlow Life at the end of June, Mr Collingwood again praised the people of Marlow for their donations but said, ‘unfortunately, we still need more as we are now supporting 1200 families that is a 10 fold increase since January.’

The One Can Trust have been in operation since 2011 and have helped thousands of people in South Bucks by donating food to those who need it the most.

However, since the outbreak of coronavirus in the UK in January, the charity is urging people to donate frequently, as the amount of people they are helping has increased dramatically.

In January, the charity was supplying parcels to feed an average of 159 people per week.

This increased to 177 in February, then 229 in March and in April, it rose again to an average of 396 to 427 people.
