Donate Food & Household Items


We have been overwhelmed by the food donations we have received thanks to the generosity of our community. As such, our current stock levels are high, leaving very little extra storage. However, we still need your help…

The pandemic has hit us hard financially and to help stop the spread of Covid, we’d prefer a financial donation towards our operating costs where possible please.

By making a donation, you can help towards the preparation and distribution of food parcels to struggling local families who are relying on a Foodbank to see them through the next three days.

Due to food stocks being high at this time we’d prefer a financial donation however, any of the items from the lists below will be gratefully received, thank you.

  • Cereal Bars
  • Tinned Potatoes
  • Tinned Fruit
  • Tinned Meat (Ham/Corned Beef)
