The foodbank was there when we really needed it, it was an absolute lifeline.

We dont think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. Thats why we provide three days nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

We have recieved an unprecedented amount of referrals during the Covid19 Crisis. We don't want to see anyone without food during this challenging time. Your donations will help us to expand our service to meet the increasing need. Thank you
