Making a difference

Thank you so much for your continued support; today we heard from a young man who had just had a heart operation and had been away from work for a while due to his illness. Having been in hospital for a number of weeks he came home to no food in the cupboard and was not due to receive any money from work until the week following his return to work. He rang in wondering if we could help him through this crisis. This afternoon he will pop down to pick up a box made up from the wonderful items that have been so generously donated. We never know when a crisis can hit, but it must be an enormous relief to know that at least someone can help and that someone is the Foodbank.

Our plea for this week:

  • Small jars of coffee
  • Small packets of sugar
  • Tinned fruit
  • Tinned vegetables especially green veg
  • Pasta sauces

We are fast approaching Easter, if anyone would like to donate some small Easter eggs that we can put into the food parcels to show our care and love, this would be lovely.

God bless and our thanks.
