VIA WINGS is a charity that develop creative and flexible solutions to multiple, complex
and entrenched social issues, experienced by families and individuals, such as poverty, mental illness, addiction, loneliness, isolation, harm or abuse, trauma, profound or complex needs and ill health. Via Wings collects from Lidl Banbridge every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and they use the food to redistribute to their client base. These donations make an impact on
the disadvantaged in many ways. It not only improves their overall diet but it also goes some way to restoring dignity and beginning to break the grip poverty has on them, regardless of how they got there.
