Health-on-Line is making a difference – Yes we ‘can’!
Health insurer Health-on-Line donates over 200 cans of food and hygiene products to local food bank, Hope for Food.
Tragically a Bournemouth-based Food Bank recently had a break in, causing a huge amount of damage with 90% of their food, clothes, toiletries and toys stolen. Health-on-Line were quick to step in and get all the staff involved to donate to the charity Hope for Food, donating over 200 cans of food and hygiene products.
Hope for Food is a local charity based in Bournemouth and is run solely by volunteers. The organisation was founded in 2012 with the aim to ‘provide life’s basic essentials on a day to day basis to people in need of help due to the current economic climate’.
Claire Matthews, founder of the charity states:
“We also aim to try and bring a little happiness back into the lives of people who perhaps, through no fault of their own, find themselves without things most of us take for granted, such as food and shelter.”

Over the last few years Health-on-Line has continuously supported the local charity by holding fundraising activities such as a Masquerade Ball and a staff Christmas Jumper event.
Mike Dalby, Managing Director at Health-on-Line said:
“Hope for Food do such a valuable work within the local community – and could potentially help every one of us at some point in our life whether it was a neighbour or friend.”
