Counting on … day 42

26th December 2021

The feast of St Stephen features in the story of King Wenceslas. In the midst of a cold and snow covered winter, the King sees a poor man suffering fuel poverty and goes to help him, taking both fuel and food. Sadly many people even in Britain suffer from both fuel and food poverty and have to count on charities such as the Trussel Trust for help. 

Between 1 April 2021 and 30 September 2021, food banks in the Trussell Trust’s UK wide network distributed 5,100 emergency food parcels a day to people in crisis.
