Queensway has swapped Christmas cards for a foodbank donation worth £300 to ensure people in need enjoy the festive season.

Queensway Dental, Queensway Orthodontics and the Skin Clinic made the bumper food donation to Billingham Foodbank in place of sending patient Christmas cards to help families who are struggling to afford the basic necessities this Christmas.

Billingham Foodbank works with The Trussell Trust and is part of a UK-wide network of food banks working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

Queensway provided the foodbank with groceries, toiletries and dental supplies including long-life milk, tinned meat and fish, washing powder, toothpastes and toothbrushes which will be used as emergency aid for people in need over the festive season.
