COVID UPDATE April 2020
“The Foodbank is desperate for donations. With schools closed for an extended period many families are now struggling to feed themselves. Our parish team have delivered about 20 parcels in the last week – a steep increase in what is usually required. The Foodbank reports that demand is outstripping supply. Can you help?"
- Please be thoughtful when you shop and continue to donate to the FoodBank collection points. Desperately needed is long-life milk, tinned meats, tinned potatoes, coffee, tea and jam. Also nappies and baby wipes.
- If you cannot donate food, please consider giving money to the Foodbank
