Royal visitor helps to shine a light

The Lighthouse Woking Foodbank welcomed HRH The Countess of Wessex to its warehouse facility at Sheerwater on 24th March, where she joined volunteers packing emergency food parcels. The food packages are being delivered to vulnerable clients in Woking Borough during the coronavirus outbreak. The Countess helped assemble parcels for delivery and heard from staff and regular volunteers at The Lighthouse about the work the foodbank is doing to help those in need.  She was also told about other inspiring projects managed by this charity – the common theme is to encourage, empower and equip people and so help transform lives through kindness, belief, and hope – which support the local community.
