How we are supporting your community

MHBS donates £100,000 to five Foodbanks 

Five foodbanks in Leicestershire and Northamptonshire have received a total of £100,000 from the Market Harborough Building Society (MHBS) as part of its Thrive Agenda.

Society donates to Leicestershire Foodbanks

South Leicester Foodbank in Wigston and Jubilee Foodbank in Market Harborough have received a portion of the funds to help kickstart their New Year campaigns. 

The money will be used to cover the increasing core costs of ensuring the foodbank can meet the growing need of emergency food parcels in Leicestershire. Since April 2022, they have distributed over 17,000 emergency food parcels to families and individuals. They predict that by April they will have helped over 22,000 people struggling to put food on the table. Read more here.
