In recent troubled and unprecedented times it is uplifting to be able to offer something to the cause in fighting the Covid 19 pandemic, whether directly or indirectly.
At BDT we have been privileged to offer assistance, along with our client, Vivid Homes, to the Basingstoke Foodbank. The Foodbank’s operations in Sarum Hill and Culver Road came under immediate pressure with the outbreak of the virus, both in terms of the required social distancing measures for their staff and volunteers, and due to an upsurge in demand for food parcel requirements.
Consequently, the Foodbank are now in occupation of Units 63 – 64 Tempus Business Centre, formerly vacant and being marketed for Vivid by BDT. The premises will be used in the foreseeable future, free of rental charge, as the Foodbank’s central collection, storage and distribution depot. The ground floor storage premises comprise 3,000 sq ft with administrative offices above.
The Foodbank continue to offer an excellent charitable service to the local community, surviving on a limited amount of Council funding and supplemented by other financial and food donations. To offer support, go to www.basingstoke.foodbank.org.uk.
