Charity Foodbank Collection

The festive season is very nearly upon us, and whilst a lot of us are looking forward to overindulging on turkey, mince pies and mulled wine, for others Christmas can be a very difficult time of year.

During the 2017/2018 financial year, 1,332,952 three-day emergency food supplies were handed out at foodbanks, this was a 13% increase on the previous year, with 484,026 recipients being children.

This year please help us make a difference to someone’s Christmas by donating food at one of our offices or the following developments by Thursday 20th December:

We’ll then take all of your donated items to a local foodbank in time to help families over the holiday period.

Not sure what to donate? The foodbank accepts toiletries and non-perishable food. These are the ten most needed items right now:

  • Rice
  • Cereal
  • Tinned meat
  • Dried pasta
  • Tea bags and instant coffee
  • Biscuits
  • Rice pudding
  • Tinned tomatoes, tinned fruit and tinned vegetables
  • Long-life milk and long-life fruit juice
  • Nappies, sanitary towels and toilet roll

Thank you for helping us make a difference and best wishes for a very merry festive season.
