Fundraising Update

Our food bank fundraiser is still in full swing, and as always, we’re gratefully accepting donations.

Barbara Vernon held another cake sale on Saturday and raised £365.31 including some generous donations! Some local people gave books, DVD’s, etc to augment the stock and Heidi made some masks which proved popular. Thank you those of you who went and supported her.

In addition to donations raised by Barbara, on our JustGiving campaign and at our food drop-off point, Kris from Wenzel’s Bakers donated more cakes, artisan breads, salads which will go into our food bags.

We anticipate the need for assistance will continue through the summer, so we’re open to donations, as always. Currently 15 families receive parcels.

If you’re interested in donating food stuffs and essentials to our drop off box at Twinsco, here’s some things which are in need:

  • Squash
  • Alphabetti spaghetti
  • Shower gel
  • Kids biscuits

Ideally food donated at the drop off point at Twinsco should come from the store itself, to thank Raj and family for their help, but food bought from other shops or even things from your own stores are gratefully accepted. Please be careful with food from your home, and check the expiration dates, as we’ve had to reject such things as salad cream expiring in 2017, or even earlier!

Other ways to donate: Please share!
