Every Little Bit Extra Helps (ELBEH) is a campaign to support foodbanks lead by Carpenters Group, S&G Response, Innovation Group, Morelli Group and Onyx PDA supporting The Trussell Trust.

After launching the ELBEH initiative in November 2021, there are an incredible number of businesses who have committed to supporting this initiative from all sectors of the motor and insurance industry.

Friday 17 December 2021 is ‘Donation Day’ for industry foodbank contributions.

In the UK, more than 14 million people are living in poverty including 4.5 million children. This ELBEH campaign wants to help and support foodbanks so they are as fully stocked as possible for Christmas.

Donations have and can been be made online via the Just Giving page EveryLittleBitExtraHelps
