Support from us

Two Taylor Wimpey branded Cyrenians Fareshare delivery vans will remain a key part of Cyrenians distribution of Fareshare food, and this year’s support from our staff will include volunteering at a number of Cyrenians’ local projects.

Boasting our branding, last year the Cyrenians Fareshare vans delivered the equivalent of 2.4 million meals in the 2021-2022 financial year to charities and community groups across Central and South East Scotland.

Right now, Cyrenians are delivering the equivalent of 50,000 meals a week to 20,000 people in the local community. That equates to 1,000 tonnes of food redistributed, saving 1,600 tonnes of C02 emissions through preventing good food going to waste.

Building community through food and tackling food poverty is a large part of Cyrenians’ work. With over 50 projects tackling the causes and consequences of homelessness - from outreach and mediation services to residential communities and community gardens – Cyrenians supports people towards more positive and stable futures, preventing homelessness.

Commenting on the support it has received from our East Scotland team, Sophie Bell, Fundraising Manager for Cyrenians, said:
