Coventry Foodbank

Coventry Foodbank has issued a new five-part video filmed in collaboration with two local dance groups as a fund-raiser to help it to meet increasing demand. The light-hearted social-media campaign seeks to raise awareness, as well as money for the foodbank, which has 14 centres in the city. Twenty-four dancers from two dance academies in the city helped to tell the story of The Night Before Christmas. The campaign follows last year’s similar initiative, which raised £22,000.
