The Westminster Foundation backs Christmas Appeal to help children access healthy food

The ‘On the Breadline’ campaign is being delivered by the Evening Standard in partnership with The Childhood Trust and Comic Relief to fund organisations helping to relieve pressure on people struggling with the cost-of-living crisis.

The Foundation’s £100,000 donation to the appeal is part of its wider £1 million cost-of-living crisis emergency fund established this Autumn to help thousands of children and families through the challenging months ahead, especially those experiencing food insecurity.

The Duke of Westminster commented: "We know that a rising number of households across the capital are facing extreme hardship this winter and it will feel even more acute during the school holidays when too many parents are forced to make impossible decisions as they skip meals to cover other financial demands.

The Childhood Trust provides a lifeline to so many children and families. We share their ambition to reduce the impact of poverty on young people living in London so I’m delighted to support the On the Breadline campaign of the Evening Standard and Independent in partnership with The Childhood Trust."
