Thanks to the generosity of financial donors, alongside physical donations of food and toiletries, we are able to bulk buy the stock we need. For both foodbanks together, we distribute approaching £16,000 of food per week.
Our current emergency fundraising appeal aims to raise £240,000 in cash and in-kind (food) donations over the next few months. This will allow us to stay open in early 2021. Currently, we are using up our reserves to purchase food for nearly 800 clients and 1500 children every week.
Please help us to stay open, in any way you can.
