Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

GUL­LIVER’S Mil­ton Keynes

FAM­ILY run theme park com­pany Gul­liver’s is once again gear­ing up to help lo­cal fam­i­lies in cri­sis by ask­ing cus­tomers to do­nate a food bank item in ex­change for dis­counted en­try to the theme park.

Over the week­end of Satur­day Oc­to­ber 8 and Sun­day Oc­to­ber 9, Gul­liver’s will host its sec­ond food bank do­na­tion week­end for 2016, work­ing in part­ner­ship with lo­cal food banks and or­gan­i­sa­tions in­clud­ing the Trus­sell Trust.

Fig­ures from The Trus­sell Trust show its net­work of 424 UK food banks gave out 1,109,309 three-day food parcels to peo­ple in cri­sis be­tween April 1 2015 and March 31 2016, up by 2% on the pre­vi­ous year.

En­try to Gul­liver’s fam­ily theme park in Mil­ton Keynes will be £9 per per­son through­out the week­end as long as ev­ery­one hands over a suit­able non-per­ish­able item of food or drink on ar­rival. Suit­able items in­clude tins, ce­re­als, fruit juice, tea bags, tinned meat and fish, dried pasta, rice and bis­cuits.
