Food Items Needed for Christmas:

For our Christmas families, we need lots more selection boxes, Christmas or sponge puddings, packet custard, large tins of ham and any children's treats. We estimate we will be providing essential parcels and Christmas Dinner parcels for 300+ families this year.


Foodbank needs your help!

We are looking for people who are willing to volunteer to help us with the Christmas parcels from Thursday 17th December to Wednesday 23rd December. However, this year is going to be very different and we want to keep people as safe as possible.

If you are:

- a fit and able family of 2-3 people, that can spare 3 hours from 1-4 on any afternoon to take heavy bags from the church to the car-park, please can you get in touch.

- an individual that is willing to bubble with other individuals and do the same job as above, then please get in touch.

- a family that can help pack parcels from 9-12 each morning, then please get in touch.

- an individual that is willing to bubble with other individuals and do the same job as above, then please get in touch.

There will be no more than 12 people in the hall or the church at any session. We will provide hand sanitizer, masks, gloves and aprons for you to use and ensure that social distancing is adhered to.​

We really need your help this year - there will be a lot more work with a lot less people.
