We Tackle Food Poverty to Help Families and Individuals in crisis


As a County and District Councillor I have the opportunity to help groups through my Councillor Grants.

I have supported a number of organisations through my Nottinghamshire County Council grants.

In terms of my Bassetlaw District Council grant the story is quite different. I tried to support both Bassetlaw Foodbank and Oasis Community Centre (which has a seperate just giving page)

Bassetlaw Foodbank and Oasis Community Centre do fantastic work in our communities.

My applications were submitted a few days late as the submission date had been changed by the council, which I was not aware of, I was informed that due to insufficient administration time and rule changes I could not donate from my grants, which I appealed, but unfortunately they would not change the decision.

This is public money that was budgeted and is to be spent at the Councillor discretion. I tried to support the community and those in my opinion in most need with this grant and wanted to give each group £475.00

I have been asked by some kind members of the community if they can support by donating and so have set up this page.

If you can help even by just a small amount that would be fantastic.

Please don't forget to use the gift aid option to increase the amount by 25% for free.

Thank you so much.

About the charity

Bassetlaw Food Bank

Verified by JustGiving

RCN 1154703
Bassetlaw Food Bank is powered by a team of volunteers, who do everything from collecting and sorting donations, to packing and delivering food parcels. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to function. The charity does not receive any formal funding, relying on donations of stock to fill our parcels, and money to cover every expense. We are a charity for the community, backed by our community!
