Lloyd Russell Moyle, MP for Brighton Kemptown, visited a number of community groups in his constituency, last month.
Sussex Community Foundation Development Manager, Stephen Chamberlain, accompanied Mr Russell Moyle to the Resource Centre, Lunch Positive and FareShare Sussex in Brighton on April 20th and heard from local community workers about their work and the current challenges they face.
Both are pictured above (right), with staff and volunteers from FareShare Sussex which has received 14 grants totalling £87,342 from Sussex Community Foundation since 2007. FareShare Sussex redistributes surplus food to organisations within the city of Brighton & Hove and the Worthing area, which feed vulnerable groups.
“It was great to have Stephen and Lloyd visit us today,” said Sabrina Carter of FareShare Sussex. “We really enjoyed discussing our mission and aims with them both and we really hope they found the visit interesting and valuable.”
