Larger donations will now be able to be collected by a charity to help people in need in the community after it took delivery of a new van.

West Herts Charity Trust donated the vehicle to One Vision, the Watford-based organisation that has been at the forefront of the response to the pandemic.

The van was the 110th the trust has donated in its history and Enoch Kanagaraj, One Vision founder and chief executive, said: “We are very humbled and honoured to have received this donation. It gives us a fantastic opportunity to broaden our work and services. It will go a long way to helping those who need our support the most.”

Since the beginning of the pandemic, One Vision has provided more than 100,000 fresh meals and over 20,000 grocery bags to the community. This equates to around four tonnes of food, some of which has been saved from landfill.

The charity is 100 per cent run on volunteer power, compassion, and the generosity of others.

Charitable acts, such as the donation of this van, mean One Vision will be able to to collect larger food donations, providing a greater impact on food security within the community.

Founded in August 2018, One Vision is a registered charity which provides practical support to vulnerable individuals and families in the district of Watford and Three Rivers.

Support is provided to those who need help as a result of inequalities caused by food poverty and social deprivation, through the provision of fresh meals, grocery bags and other essential items.
