Ed Sheeran and LadBaby Strengthen Waveney Food Bank

Pop superstar Ed Sheeran and Christmas sausage roll song group LadBaby made a surprise visit to Waveney Foodbank near Eye earlier today. Keith Morris reports.

Food Bank Project Manager Matthew Scade was delighted to meet Mark and Roxanne from LadBaby and Ed Sheeran when they visited the Waveney Food Bank warehouse (which covers much of South Norfolk) located just outside Eye in Suffolk.

During the visit, which will air on BBC Breakfast on Wednesday morning (December 22), they discussed the work the Waveney Food Bank does, including what goes into a food box, and Matthew gave them some facts and figures about how many people the food bank fed, and how much food members of the public donated.
The musical trio helped pack Christmas boxes and bags for customers struggling locally.

LadBaby worked with Sir Elton John and Suffolk musician Ed Sheeran to release a Christmas single Sausage Rolls for Everyone with all proceeds going directly to the Trussell Trust charitable food bank. The song could give LadBaby a fourth number 1 Christmas single in a row and is available as a digital download.

The Waveney Food Bank, part of the Trussell Trust, operates in South Norfolk and Suffolk and has two warehouses and 11 distribution centers. These centers, run by a team of wonderful volunteers, have provided the equivalent of around 500,000 meals to local populations in crisis since the start of the pandemic.

Matthew said: “Without the donations received by the public, the food bank could not function and I would like to take this opportunity to tell everyone who has donated to the Waveney Food Bank, and everyone who is doing well. tireless volunteers every week … thank you so much and myself and the trustees would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. “

He added, “If you or someone you know is struggling financially and regularly has to choose between buying food or paying a bill, please contact us as soon as possible. There are agencies that can offer comprehensive support while the food bank feeds you. Please call or email and we’ll do our best to get you back on your feet as quickly as possible.
