Let them eat Sarnies!
Millions of us, both nationally and globally, have mourned the death of Queen Elizabeth II. Her funeral was watched by billions of people, making it the most watched television event in history.
As we look back on her life, we enjoy watching her grow from a beautiful, radiant young woman when she was crowned in 1953, to a Platinum Jubilee in June of this year, when she became longest reigning monarch of Great Britain. She has been a constant throughout our lives, making history.
But as the people mourned, they bought His Majesty a marmalade sandwich. Why? For her wonderful friendship with none other than Mr. Paddington Bear. In fact, so much bread was left behind, people were told not to bring any more!
Hence, from this, Let them eat Sarnies initiative was born. What if we gave those breads to people who really need them?
When food banks closed for funerals, the 700,000 people who depended on them went short. But don’t be afraid. You can help them!
The cost of living crisis has pushed everyone to a breaking point. Many people cannot keep up with the rising cost of food. More than ever, more people are choosing between heating and dining as we move into the colder months. The number of people living off food banks, community kitchens and social supermarkets has increased rapidly.
The Let them eat Sarnies fundraising allows you to ‘buy’ a marmalade sandwich. You can give the equivalent of a marmalade sandwich (or ten, or a hundred, or a thousand!) to people who really need them. Starting at just £3 for a sandwich, a few pounds can help someone in need.
100% of donations go to Food Bank Aid, a UK registered charity. Food bank Aid is a grassroots charity addressing food poverty in North London. They collect and buy food, toiletries and other essential goods and distribute them to food banks that need them.
