A local Airsoft club run by an RAF veteran has donated hundreds of food items to a North Lincolnshire food bank in the club’s latest charitable act of 2020.
RAF veteran Ian Lawrence and his fellow members at Lincolnshire Airsoft Club responded to a social media appeal from the Kirton in Lindsey food bank near Scunthorpe.
So far, over 300 separate food items have been donated by people of all ages at the club, in two separate drop offs.
A third delivery has been planned for Thursday, November 5, the day the country goes back into national lockdown.
Ian and the rest of the Lincolnshire Airsoft Club members have also spent 2020 helping tackle the coronavirus pandemic, creating PPE free of charge.
They were involved in the 3D printing of 5,215 face shields, provided 500 nitrile safety gloves and created nearly 60 litres of hand sanitiser.
LAC is also involved in the annual Poppy Appeal, raising money through charity auctions.
When asked about all of the group’s charitable acts, Ian said: “If we do not look out for each other, then who will?”
