Charity to help people in Daventry

A CHARITY which links businesses who have an unwanted surplus to people in need is expanding its operations to Daventry.

Giving World Online aims to combat poverty and protect the planet, utilising perfectly new goods that end up in landfill sites every year.

The charity, based at Burleys Way in Leicester, received a Big Lottery grant to develop the area Giving World Online supports.

And charities and businesses in the Daventry district can now register to support the cause.

Project officer Brian Langton said: “Giving World Online is an award- winning innovative platform which enables businesses to donate surplus end-of-line stock free of charge, to people in need.

“At the same time, with 13.4 million people in the UK living below the poverty line, this has a substantial beneficial impact on the lives of vulnerable and isolated people.”
